Pakistan’s Yousuf asked to face hearing after ICL U-turn

MUMBAI – Pakistan batsman Mohammad Yousuf has been asked to face an arbitration hearing over his decision to pull out of a rebel Indian Twenty20 league.

Yousuf had signed up with the lucrative Indian Cricket League (ICL), which has not been approved by national boards, but then changed his mind and joined the Indian Premier League

(IPL).

The IPL is the Indian board’s multi-million dollar professional Twenty20 league launched to counter the rebel version.

Yousuf has been asked to attend the hearing in Mumbai a day before Pakistan begin their first test against India in New Delhi on November 22.

India’s Essel Group, the promoters of the ICL, confirmed they had sent the batsman a legal notice for arbitration.

“We will not let him set a bad example,” Ashish Kaul, executive vice president of the Essel Group, said on Friday.

The inaugural tournament of the ICL will be played from November 30 to December 16. The league has attracted several big names including Brian Lara and Inzamam-ul-Haq.

“The Pakistan Cricket Board will be handling all these matters,” Pakistan team’s media manager Ehsan Malik told Reuters.
