ICL issues show-cause notice to Yousuf

NEW DELHI: The Indian Cricket League (ICL) issued a show-cause notice to Muhammad Yousuf, after the star batsman announced earlier this week that he will cancel his contract with the rebel league to make himself available for Pakistan duty.

Confirming the news, vice-president Indian Cricket League Promoters Ashish Cole said that they sent the notice on the basis of principles to avoid any unpleasant situation in future.

It has been learnt that the ICL officials have sent a letter to Yousuf asking him to immediately explain why he has announced the cancelling a contract with the league.

Yousuf, 33, joined the breakaway ICL earlier this summer after signing a lucrative deal following Pakistan’s decision to drop him from their squad for the inaugural World Twenty20 in South Africa.

The batting maestro, who was recently named Test player of the year by the International Cricket Council (ICC), was the biggest star roped in by the ICL. However, PCB chairman Nasim Ashraf decided to pursue Yousuf and finally convinced him to sign a central contract with the Board, following a meeting in Lahore earlier week.

Yousuf’s decision to finally sign the central contract earned him a signing bonus worth US$100,000 and he is also likely to receive a few other cash rewards. But he is now also facing a legal battle against the ICL organisers who claim that Yousuf will stop play in their league.

Pakistan cricket team’s media manager Ahsan Hameed Malik said that the PCB would go through the whole matter. He said that Yousuf would get the services of top class lawyers if the ICL organisers opted to begin legal proceedings against him.

The Indian cricket league begins from November 30 and conclude on December 16.
