Pakistan cricket players may now participate in four sports leagues compared to the former policy which only allowed two.
The Pakistan Cricket Board released its new No Objection Certificate (NOC) policy for its players. According to the new policy, players may now take part in a maximum of four foreign leagues, including their very own Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The PCB had reiterated that as per the new policy, the NOC requests will come through the International Cricket Operations department as well as the national head coach and team management. The NOC will then be carried out with respect to a player’s workload and international commitments.
‘We have given primacy and importance to player workload, international and domestic commitments, but at the same time it was important that players are given the opportunities to make additional earnings and develop their skills around the world’, PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said.
Domestic players who play white-ball cricket will need to commit to the domestic 50-over and 20-over tournaments in order to attain their NOCs for the leagues like the PSL. The PSL is the most renowned cricket league in Pakistan. To know more about this league, check out Betwala.
