The players have requested the PCB to change their decision
Pakistan players are unhappy after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that they would revoke the No Objection Certificates (NOCs) granted to the players who were expected to feature in the T10 League.
The players have requested the PCB to change their decision whereas the board has claimed that the T10 League is an Indian event and avoiding it would be the best course of action in the current circumstances.
According to details, the T10 League is scheduled to be played from November 15 to 24 in Abu Dhabi. Pakistan Cricketers who were initially expected to feature in the league were:
Qalandars: Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Imran Nazir, Sohail Akhtar, Haris Rauf, Mirza Ahsan.
Team Abu Dhabi: Mohammad Amir.
Delhi Bulls: Shoaib Malik, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Hasnain, Aamer Yamin.
Maratha Arabians: Mohammad Irfan.
Deccan Gladiators: Anwar Ali.
Northern Warriors: Wahab Riaz.
The PCB had granted NOCs for its players to participate in the draft process however the players were informed via email to focus on domestic tournaments and not participate in the T10 league.
According to sources, only Afridi and Nazir are expected to feature in the event because the two players do not require an NOC from the PCB. The decision has upset various players who have recorded their protest through different channels.
Some players, who did not wish to be named, asked why the PCB allowed their names to be featured in the draft if they did not wish to let them participate in the actual event.
A final decision is expected to be made in this regard next week. According to sources, a Pakistan national holds 51 percent of the shares of the league.
