The Afghanistan Cricket Board has postponed the start of the second season of its Afghanistan Premier League T20 cricket competition due to missing payments from the league’s commercial partner, Snixer Sports, as well as concerns about the integrity of some of those involved. 

The ACB has moved to terminate the agreement with Snixer and will reissue a tender for the commercial rights in the coming weeks. The second edition of the APL was scheduled to begin in October, but no new date has yet been announced.
