Lahore, Dec 27 (ANI): Reports have suggested that at least six more Pakistan cricketers may join the ICL, and they are mainly players who dont have permanent places in the national team.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has already banned six of its Indian Cricket League (ICL) players from playing domestic cricket.

Inzamam-ul-Haq, Abdul Razzaq, Shabbir Ahmed, Taufiq Umar, Imran Farhat and Azhar mahmood have been told that they cannot represent their parent department in any PCB-recognised tournament after participating in the recently held ICL.

Farhat, Umar and Ahmed have said that they will move the courts over the ban.

Meanwhile, the PCBs Media Director, Ahsan Hameed Malik, has confirmed the player ban.

Yes, the PCB has written a letter to all the affiliated units on Dec 6, instructing them not to allow (to play) any such players, who are involved with any league cricket, not recognised by the board, the Dawn quoted Malik, as saying.

The PCB is only punishing the players to please its Indian counterpart, otherwise there is nothing wrong in the entire matter, Imran countered. (ANI)
