Pakistan Board Gives NOCs To 12 Players For Foreign Leagues; Check Out The List

Fakhar Zaman and Azam Khan are part of the 12 cricketers who received no-objection certificates (NOCs) from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) allowing them to participate in international leagues and tournaments.

Notably, PCB allows its centrally contracted players to feature in only two T20 leagues apart from the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Mohammad Amir is the only one of them who will play for Derbyshire in the County Championship between July 4 and July 20. The second season of Major League Cricket (MLC) will include up to three players from July 4 to July 28.

Abrar Ahmed, Haris Rauf, and Zaman Khan will appear in MLC, which begins on July 5 and concludes on July 28. Interestingly, the PCB press release mentions Amir playing in the County Championship but not Imad Wasim, who plays for the Seattle Orcas.

Both players returned from international retirement for the recently finished T20 World Cup, but Pakistan was eliminated in the group round, and it is unclear whether they will continue to play for the country.

The fifth edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) began on July 1 (Monday), and four more players from the country will compete in the tournament.
