Islamabad:

A senior official of the Pakistan Super League has quit following the indefinite postponement of the country's first professional Twenty20 event last week.

Salman Sarwar Butt stepped down as managing director with immediate effect on Wednesday, saying he had previously intimated to the Pakistan Cricket Board that he would be unable to work with the PSL beyond April.

The PSL was supposed to be played from March 26 to April 6, but the PCB postponed it last Friday after complaints from investors over tight bidding deadlines and from players about scheduling conflicts.

Sarwar Butt says it was a difficult decision "but my personal and professional commitments would preclude me from carrying on."

PCB has appointed director general Javed Miandad as acting managing director of PSL.
