PCB Holds Firm on Requirement for Leagues’ NOC


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided not to extend No Objection Certificates (NOCs) for national cricketers, affecting their participation in ongoing international leagues like the UAE ILT20 and the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2024.

Despite player appeals, the PCB is maintaining its stance. Sources reveal that many cricketers sought NOC extensions to seize opportunities in these leagues. However, after a thorough review, the PCB opted against extending NOCs, informing players that their participation is limited until February 7.

Players for the national team, both past and present, are unhappy about this choice. Even individuals who play in continuing competitions but do not actively represent Pakistan in international matches have been called up.

An anonymous player argued that players with a manageable workload should be allowed extended participation in leagues. With the imminent start of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on February 17, the player suggested permitting participation in leagues until then.

The player pointed out that the PCB has different times for giving approval. He asked the PCB to create a uniform policy, stressing that players who aren’t on the national team ought to be able to participate in leagues without any obstacles.
