Pakistan players unavailable for Dhaka T20s due to PSL: PCB
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), denying speculations that the country’s cricketers were not taken for next year’s T20 games between Asia XI and World XI, said they will not be available for the clash of fixtures between Pakistan Super League and the aforementioned matches.
“There is some confusion regarding the Asian eleven and World eleven matches. Our players were invited but since these matches are clashing with the Pakistan Premier League it is not possible for us to make our players available,” a PCB spokesman said.
The two matches between the Asian XI and World XI are scheduled to be held on March 18 and 21 in Dhaka.
“The fact is that back in June we were invited by the Asian Cricket Council to nominate players for the Asian eleven and we accordingly requested the ACC and Bangladesh board to slightly adjust the dates of these matches so that our players can also participate in them,” he said.
However PCB rejected any involvement of Indian board behind sidelining the Pakistani cricketers while selecting Asian XI squad.
He further said,
“We had requested a shift in dates since dates were clashing with the latter part of the PSL to be held in Pakistan this time.”
“That is why our players are not taking part in these matches,” he added.
