PCB has planned exhibition T10 matches as players fear denial of NOC for leagues

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is planning to hold T10 matches in the last week of January, sources told Geo News on Monday.

The PCB wants to include all national players in these T10 games, even those who are contractually bound to participate in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and the UAE ILT20.

The decision to hold exhibition matches comes after the cricket board faced challenges in getting government approval for a dedicated T10 league.

The PCB had sealed the deal with Middlesex County Cricket Club, signaling its commitment to making T10 matches a reality.

However, players participating in the BPL and ILT20 are currently facing a hurdle, as they are yet to receive the No Objection Certificate (NOC). The delay in the issuance of these certificates has frustrated the players considering their current contractual obligations to the respective leagues.

To deal with the situation, team director Mohammad Hafeez has been tasked with ensuring the availability of all players for the T10 matches, in line with the PCB’s wishes for a comprehensive representation of national talent in the format.

PCB’s fascination with T10 matches continues

It should be noted that PCB’s fascination with T10 Matches continues. A recent statement by PCB Management Committee Chairman Zaka Ashraf indicated his desire to establish the league during his tenure.

Zaka Ashraf is eager to make an impact on Pakistani cricket through a successful T10 league.

The aim is to schedule these matches after the national team’s return from NewZealand, ensuring optimal player availability and fan engagement.

The Test phase will also serve as a barometer of public interest in T10 cricket within Pakistan. The reception of these matches will significantly influence future decisions about the league.
