T-10 League is being held in November-December this year in Sharjah and the participation of Pakistani players, which was formerly in limbo, has been confirmed as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to give NOCs to the participating players.
The PCB said in a statement on Wednesday that it has decided to issue NOCs to some of its players after due diligence was carried out by the PCB in which the board procured and processed detailed information from the International Cricket Council and the Emirates Cricket Board.
“Furthermore the PCB’s own Anti-Corruption Unit also carried out a thorough review,” the statement read.
Ehsan Mani, the new PCB chairman had revoked the permission to some of the players, as they wanted to ensure the event was free of corruption. PCB has observed that the ICC has given approval for member boards to issue NOCs to their players to take part in the league if they wish to.
“As a consequence of this review, the PCB has decided to allow its players to take part in the T-10 league and like the first edition the PCB will send its own integrity officers to monitor the league,” the statement said.
The PCB’s change of heart comes after it took a policy decision a few months back to allow its contracted and main players to only appear in two leagues before the World Cup including its own Pakistan Super League.
