PCB bans seven Pak players for playing in ICLDecember 20th, 2007 - 1:16 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, Dec 20 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned seven cricketers, including former skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq from playing the domestic league, for taking part in the Indian Cricket League (ICL).
“Since the ICL is not recognised by the PCB and the Indian Cricket Board, the players who have joined the ICL despite warnings from their respective boards will not be allowed to play in the domestic circuit,” PCB spokesman said.
Besides Inzamam, the other players banned by the PCB are Abdul Razzaq, Shabbir Ahmad, Azhar Mehmood, Taufiq Umar and Imran Farhat.
“The rebel players have tried to contact the PCB through their respective departments, but the board gave them a cold shoulder,” the spokesman said.
He said despite showing good performance in the ICL, the players would not be considered even for the national camp.
“The board is following zero tolerance policy towards such players,” the Daily Times quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
