Cricket's governing body in the United States is looking to create a Twenty20 Premier League similar to the one organized by India.

The USA Cricket Association on Thursday invited formal proposals from groups interested in helping to launch a professional league.

Commercial adviser Nigel Rushman said in a statement: "We are confident that, with the right partners, the USA can host a world class Premier League which will fill grounds and attract massive television and online audiences."

Proposals to develop professional cricket in the United States must be received by Aug. 7.

USACA wants to identify potential partners, sponsors and broadcasters.
