Pak ICL Players to go to Court over ban
NEW DELHI: Indian Cricket League-contracted Pakistan players are set to approach court to obtain a stay order against the ban restricting them from playing domestic games.
The Pakistan Cricket Board initially stated that players joining ICL would not be considered for national duty – but now they have also been disallowed from participating in domestic matches.
The home games ban means applies to Inzamam-ul-Haq, Abdul Razzaq, Azhar Mahmood, Imran Farhat, Shabbir Ahmed and Taufeeq Umar – and the situation has prompted them to seek assistance from court.
Opener Farhat told The News: “Cricket is our bread and butter. This is a violation of our fundamental rights.
“We will go to court and get a stay order. They cannot stop us from playing even domestic cricket.”
It is believed that Razzaq, Shabbir and Taufeeq will join Farhat in the legal proceedings tomorrow
