PCB Is Thinking Of Letting Pakistani Cricketers Play In ILT20
May 18, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
The UAE-based league’s second season will start on January 13, 2024.
The first International League T20 (ILT20), which took place from January 13 to February 12 of this year, did not feature any players from Pakistan.
Top players may earn a staggering USD 450,000 in the UAE-based league’s inaugural season. Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan, however, may have received up to USD $900,000. A three-year contract and captaincy were also on the table.
Numerous organizations also inquired about Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hasnain for the first season in addition to the aforementioned three. Azam Khan was in fact chosen by Desert Vipers for the competition, but the PCB later refused to grant him a No-Objection Certificate.
All of them were informed that they could only participate in the league when they had free time from their national and PSL (Pakistan Super League) commitments. In spite of this, the PCB refused to allow any of its players to take part in the competition
. Ramiz Raja, the then-chairman of the PCB, had further requested payment from the Emirates Cricket Board in return for the release of the players for the league.
Najam Sethi, the head of the PCB at the moment, does not have a rigid position on the ILT20, though. He recently said that it would be impossible to block Pakistani players at this time since the players are also thinking about creating associations to defend their rights during a meeting of the PSL governing council.
According to Sethi, PCB and the UAE have strong connections and can negotiate using the “give and take” philosophy. At the time, it was recommended that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) could begin its upcoming season in Dubai in order to raise awareness of the competition and draw in players from outside.
The PSL franchise owners disagree with this recommendation, though. They contend that the PSL would suffer if Pakistani players were released and the ILT20 was strengthened.
The sources claim that Pakistani cricketers would be seen competing in the ILT20 if the current administration is in place for the next three years.
