PSL organizers say 50 foreign players signed up

Pakistani players

Pakistan Super League organizers say they have secured over 50 foreign cricketers to take part in the country's first professional Twenty20 tournament starting March.

PSL managing director Salman Sarwar Butt did not reveal the nationality of players, but says his management ``had already obtained signatures of more than 50 overseas players with some more likely to sign up shortly.''

The cricket boards of Australia and South Africa have reportedly refused to allow their players travel to Pakistan due to security reasons, and Butt says he knows well ``it would not be easy to change perceptions.''

Pakistan has not hosted a test playing nation for four years, since gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka team convoy in March 2009, injuring players and killing six police officials and a driver.
