In an attempt to ensure players’ participation in domestic tournaments, the Pakistan Cricket Board is considering to issue limited period NOCs to players drafted for the Caribbean Premier League and the Euro T20 Slam this year.
Reliable sources said that PCB wants players to be back home by the middle of September so that they are available for the home season and domestic tournaments.
“The PCB is of the view that players should be given 10 to 15 days NOCs for these two T20 tournaments,” said the source.
The Caribbean Premier League starts on September 4 and the Euro T20 Slam starts on August 30.
“There’s a likelihood that NOCs to Pakistani players by PCB would be till the 10th or maximum 12th of September so that players can return home in time,” the source said.
Several Pakistani players are drafted by various teams to play in the two leagues, and unavailability of players due to reasons other than international commitments or injuries may irk other boards hosting these tournaments.—Agencies
