The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided against giving its players a (NOC) to participate in the second edition of T10 Cricket League in the United Arab Emirates. The decision comes when questions will be raised against the League’s finances.
Ehsan Mani said; “I am backing my position [to participate in the T10 of Pakistan players] as long as I am satisfied with the details, instead of promoting this league”.He also said that PCB has assured its players’ well-being as well as protecting their own credibility. There are a number of franchisees and leagues, and we should be very carefully and selectively make decisions.PCB already has a rule that no player other than PSL can play in more than one league.
Former chairman, Najam Sethi, promised that, despite the reservations of the PSL’s franchisees, the Pakistani players will be available for the first two seasons of the League. However, Salman Iqbal won the trust of Najam Sethi. Now the commitment has ended because the chairman has changed.
Mani also said that I hoped there will be no impact of tensions between Pakistan and India on the cricket board of two countries. Politicians when to speak, we do not go to it. We should not. Our focus is only on cricket, and talk on cricket.
However, the second edition of T10 league is starting from 23 November to 2 December 2018. The time duration of the single game is 90 minutes. The participation of Pakistani players is still not confirmed yet.
