Lahore: Feb 10, 2013
 
The PCB was forced to postpone the Pakistan Super League T20 since several Boards refused to give NOCs to their players for the cricket tournament, sources said today.
 
The PCB had signed memorandum of understandings with several foreign players but Boards from the West Indies, Zimbabwe and Ireland were the only one to issue NOCs to their respective players.
 
“It is a fact that the PCB had signed MOUs with around 70 to 80 players from different countries including South Africa, England, Australia, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Kenya, New Zealand for the PSL,” the source said.
 
“But when the Board started to approach the concerned boards to issue NOCs to play in the PSL they didn’t get a very good response and were downright disappointed. Only the West Indies, Zimbabwe and Ireland had given positive response to the PCB request,” the source added.
 
He said the players included some popular T20 experts for example Andre Russell of the West Indies.
 
He said most of the players had made it clear while signing the MOUs they could only confirm their contracts if their boards gave them NOCs for the PSL.
 
He said even in the matters of selling franchises and other products of the league, the board had got very strong response.
 
“It it is true that some eight broadcasters including some from India had expressed interest and some even submitted bids for the broadcasting rights of the PSL while some 11 companies and individuals had confirmed their interest in buying the franchises. It was only when the PCB sought support of other boards particularly India that it was left disappointed.”
