Decision was taken in a meeting between PSL and board officials on Tuesday
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has restricted its contracted players from taking part in United Arab Emirates’ T20 league.
In a press release issued by the Pakistan Super League (PSL) secretariat, the board has taken a strong stance regarding its players taking part in the recently announced Emirates T20 league.
“The Governing Council expressed its concerns over a newly announced T20 league taking place in the UAE. It was decided that PCB will not allow any contracted players to take part in any T20 league taking place in the UAE other than PSL,” the press release stated.
In the meeting between PSL franchises and PCB officials, there were concerned about T20 leagues taking place in UAE around the PSL window which could hamper tournament’s brand image.
This measure comes as a possible counter move after PCB chairman Najam Sethi earlier warned the cricketing authorities in the UAE to avoid scheduling matches in the country between October and March.
