Former International Cricket Council boss, Haroon Lorgat, who is now a consultant for the Pakistan Cricket Board''s new Twenty20 league, has said the Pakistan Super League has huge potential and will attract top foreign players to participate in the event soon.

Lorgat, who was the Chief Executive of ICC during a crucial phase, strongly believes that foreign players will return to play in Pakistan. He said the negative perceptions about safety and security are well known but the PCB will put in place a security plan to deal with the risks and perceptions.

He said the enquiries received from international players to play in the league are extremely encouraging. He said Pakistan players are good Twenty20 players as they have serious talent and skill.
