PCB recalls 13 players from CPL and English county circuit


#1
The Pakistan Cricket Board has abruptly revoked No-Objection Certificates given to 13 players currently in England and the West Indies and has asked them to return home to fulfill national and domestic commitments.

The board had originally given as many as 10 players, including seven centrally contracted cricketers, permission to play the entire Caribbean Premier League - which began on August 4 and runs until September 9. Three cricketers without central contracts - Kamran Akmal, Sohail Tanvir and Mohammad Sami - have also been asked to return after they were selected by Rawalpindi, Faisalabad and Lahore Whites for the National T20 Cup. While there is no contractual compulsion on them to do so, it is expected that they will.

The same notices went out to Mohammad Amir, who was to stay with Essex until September, Sarfraz Ahmed, who was to play five games for Yorkshire in the Natwest T20 Blast, and Fakhar Zaman, who was set to join Somerset until the end of the season.

Essex are currently top of Division One of the Championship, after Amir's ten-wicket haul helped them to a two-day win over Yorkshire earlier this week. They are understood to be in negotiations with the PCB about when Amir is required to return, but could try to bring back New Zealand quick Neil Wagner, who filled the overseas spot in the first half of the season, as a replacement.


Quote:The centrally contracted players were given permission to participate in the CPL and English county season subject to recall if the World XI series took place in mid-September," the PCB said in a statement. "So they are being recalled owing to the changes in the schedule brought about due to the change in the original plan of the World XI's tour of Pakistan.
