ICL : Imran and Taufiq leave for India today

KARACHI: Pakistan Test openers Imran Farhat and Taufiq Umar are leaving for New Delhi, India on Wednesday (today) to play in the Indian Cricket League (ICL).

Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan, who played a vital role in convincing the players to participate in the ICL, is also leaving with them. Imran told Daily Times on Tuesday that he still wanted to represent Pakistan at international level but it all depended on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

“It is always an honour to represent the country. But the circumstances and the selectors have forced me to join the ICL,” Imran said.

The left-handed batsman, who has played 27 Tests and 33 ODIs, said the ball was now in the PCB’s court. “They have to decide whether to consider those players who have opted for the ICL.” He said he would fulfill his commitment with the ICL as he had signed with them.

Taufiq, who has played 25 Tests and 19 ODIs, said it was the most difficult decision of his career to join the ICL. “But justice was not done with me despite performing well in the domestic circuit.

I had no choice but to join the league.” Former Test all-rounder Azhar Mahmood is also leaving for India on Thursday to play in the ICL. Former captain Inzamamul Haq, who is already in India, will join the league later this month.
