PCB withdraws NOC of national players for T10 League


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has withdrawn No Objection Certificate (NOC) of national players to participate in the controversial T10 League, ARY News reported.

According to the PCB, they have decided to not allow their players to participate in the disputed 10-overs format franchise league following the ongoing domestic season and upcoming Australia tour.

The board has made sure to keep their players away from franchise cricket during the domestic season.

“To manage the players’ workload, continued work on their fitness levels as well as to ensure primacy and participation of its players in its premier Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the PCB has revoked conditional NOCs of its players to feature in the T10 tournament,” the PCB stated in a press release.

It must be noted here that the T10 League had marred by plenty of corruption scandals. Recently, the International Cricket Council (ICC) had charged three cricketers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for their role in match-fixing during India-based controversial T10 League.

The skipper of the UAE cricket team, Mohammad Naveed was also among the players who had been charged with 13 counts of breaching the ICC’s anti-corruption code during the disputed league based on 90-balls format. The other two players include Shaiman Anwar and Qadeer Khan, both from the UAE.

In 2017, Sri Lankan players including Dilhara Lokuhettige and Nuwan Zoysa also found guilty of doing match-fixing during this league. They were charged for breaching the anti-corruption code by the world’s cricket governing body.
