PCB denies two CPL NOC requests
At least two cricketers have been discouraged from trying out for the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Sources say that the PCB has urged Azam Khan and Qasim Akram to play in the National T20 Cup. It begins on August 30th, rather than grant them NOCs to participate in the Caribbean Premier League. On September 1, 2022, the new season of CPL will begin.
Barbados Royals signed Azam, while St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots chose Qasim Akram for the Caribbean Premier League. Players can participate in up to three ICC-approved international leagues outside of the PSL. Also, their schedules don’t conflict with any PCB-organized events or national duties. Plus, their workload and fitness are monitored closely. According to the source, the PCB believes these players are an investment. So they should not be permitted to prioritise franchise cricket over Pakistani domestic competitions.
“Players who are in PCB plans have been advised to play in the National T20 Cup. It is a qualification for selection in the national side. The PCB has made its mind that playing and performing in CPL or any other league will not be a criterion to earn selection in the Pakistan side,” said a source.
“Players under consideration for future plans are expected to play in the National T20 Cup to stake a claim in the national side,” the source added.
