PCB allows cricketers to return to CPL, county

Less than a fortnight since Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recalled its players midway through CPL and County Championship, it has decided to let them go back their respective stints in the West Indies and England. PCB had taken the step of revoking the players’ No-Objection Certificate (NOC) in order for them to be available for national as well as domestic tournaments.
While Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Sami, Imad Wasim, Babar Azam, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Kamran Akmal, Hasan Ali and Sohail Tanvir had to cut short their CPL season, the trio of Sarfraz Ahmed, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Amir had returned from England. They will now undergo fitness tests before jetting off to their respective destinations.
PCB chairman Najam Sethi explained the complete change of plans for the 13 cricketers involved in CPL and county was owing to the confirmation of the World XI series in September and the subsequent rescheduling of Pakistan domestic competition -National T20.
