Losing the PAK players will definitely hurt BPL, especially because PCB was extra nasty in telling BCB at the last possible moment. If the confirmation came earlier, BPL could have tried to get replacement players more effectively. It would be funny if a team cancels a scheduled series in PAK days before it is supposed to start.

I won't be surprised PCB manages to host ZIM or WI somehow this year. Money talks and after PSL PCB will have lot of it.
PCB might arrange a PAK IND tour in Dubai. PCB and BCCI are close.
I hate to say this but I have a feeling BPL won't be same without PAK players. Why? People in BD show up in stadiums to see subcontinent players, not to see no name players from other countries. That's why stadium is empty even when SA national team visit.
