PCB allows players to compete in SA T20 League | Cricket News


KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (pcb) decided to allow his players to make themselves available for the inauguration South African T20 League in which the majority of teams are owned by Indians.
Initially, the PCB decided not to issue NOCs to its players for the inaugural Emirates Cricket League and SA League due to international and domestic commitments, but with the boards of Pakistan and West Indies agreeing to stage a T20 series to state, the board changed its position.
The T20 series against the West Indies was scheduled for January 2023, but will now be held in early 2024.
“Centrally contracted and non-contracted players can now make themselves available for the SA league and also other leagues held during this time frame, apart from the Emirates league,” an official source said.
He said PCB changed its mind after the South African board announced that each of the six franchises could now sign an extra wildcard player after the player auction was concluded a few weeks ago.
No Pakistani player was allowed to participate in the auction.
Most of the teams in the SA league are owned by Indians and the same is the case in the Emirates league.
The source said players can also sign up for the Bangladesh Premier League if they are their customers.
Two Pakistani youngsters, Azam Khan and Muhammad Hasnain, were approached by a non-Indian-owned franchise in the ECL, but the board refused to give them NOCs as it made a policy that none of its players in the ECL will not play.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India has also not given any approval to its players to participate in the Emirates or SA leagues, even though the majority of the franchises are owned by the franchises participating in the Indian Premier League.
