    Will PCB also recall players from BPL/Global T20 due to its clash with the first-class season?

    It is understood that Chief selector of Pakistan and Coach Mickey Arthur have called back players from the leagues they are playing due to camp for world 11 tour and national T20 cup .The BPL and Global league tournament is clashing with first class season of Pakistan so will PCB follow the same route and will call back the players or will there be U-turn in policy again from the PCB?

    All the mainstream Pakistan cricketers will be playing in the BPL. The BPL rejects like Akmal brothers will be playing in the global T20.

    BPL teams except for Khulna have designed their team without being dependant on Pakistan cricketers with BCB probably telling them to be careful.

    I don't mind Pakistan cricketers pulling out although I think the likes of Afridi should be allowed to play in BPL.

    PCB however out of professionalism should not pull out its players in the middle of the competition. That will leave some teams in a mess while other teams will be pleased. In the end teams won't be willing to pick Pakistani cricketers in the future.

    There is a reason why a lot of BPL teams already have replacements in place for Pakistan cricketers while some didn't even pick Pakistan cricketers just to be safe. I don't think CPL teams would be picking Riaz Akmal brothers Babar next time around.

    These tournaments will clash with SL series too so it is unlikely that our top players will go to BPL.
    I think PCB is not going to give NOCs to the players for BPL anyway this time around. They were criticized a lot last year for allowing players to go to BPL during domestic season.

    No offense, but BPL is a terrible league similar to one that would be held in Afghanistan or Sri Lanka.

    Hopefully they do. I only have a problem with Zaman and Amir being called back because FC County cricket will always be much more beneficial for a player than this stupid T20 tournament.

    FC season is more important.May be let them play in SA as it will allow Pakistani players to adjust to pace and bounce but BPL will have no or little to offer Pakistanis in terms of new experiance.

    i know bpl have signed some big players this time but the duration of there tenure is not confirmed so

    Gayle and Dwayne Bravo will play global T20 and then BPL if their team qualifies. Others players have signed up for pretty much the entire tournament and their payment is according to the time they spend playing.

    Both the leagues will run during the same time period so no player can truly play both leagues. So those signed upto play BPL won't be taking part in global T20. If they are picked in the draft they won't be participating in BPL.

    Those who are likely to play in SA won't be around for BPL. Likes of Morgan Roy Hales Sammy KP are all in global T20.

    global league have some very good named signed but so have bpl i will wait till global league draft before

    Like I said the majority of the players are going to be playing a good portion of the BPL. Some though may have international commitments but they will still be around for more than just a short cameo. Not 2 or 3 matches.

    Global T20 should have some exciting players. A lot of Bangladeshi cricketers like Tamim Shakib Riad were asked to put their names in the draft but we have BPL. It's a bit unfortunate for SA league but it's their fault for arranging their tournament during BPL. BBL or NatWest blast have fewer players. PSL IPL BPL Cpl have plenty of foreign players.

    Yes, they might have some good cricketers, but it's not a high profile league.

    Looks like we shall not see many of Pakistan players in this edition of BPL. PCB is thinking of giving NOCs to only 3-4 players who are under PCB contract. The reason of that according to sources is i)- to manage the workload of players because they cannot play in every league across the year and ii)- to protect players from fixing scandals as last year happened with Imad Wasim.

    Good decision by the PCB. Test players should not be playing in the BPL.

    Let Malik. Fahim. Fakhar. Afridi Shadab Junaid play. Test players like Amir Sarfaraz should not participate.

    No bro Executioner meant they should rest as they also play test cricket, thus managing their work load is important.

    Ditto. BPL will take a huge toll on the players to be honest.

    But to be fair each team in the BPL has excess of 8 foreign players which means the players will get frequent rest if they play. Amir bowling 4 overs once ever 3 or 5 days won't hurt if they play. It would be criminal to deny NOC to someone like Shadab who can earn like 80k for a month long stint in BPL, considering the lad isn't considered for tests but with Yasir it's unlikely

    Pakistan’s National T20 Cup is set to clash with BPL and Global T20 league this year, which means the participation of Pakistani players is in doubt in abroad T20 leagues.

    Last month, PCB revoked the NOCs of Pakistan’s 13 players who were participating in CPL and English domestic circuit because of National T20 Cup, which was scheduled to begin from 25 August.

    Later on, PCB Chairman Najam Sethi announced the postponement of National T20 Cup to November, saying the recalled players had to undergo fitness test after which they can re-join their respective leagues.

    Pakistan’s National T20 Cup is now Scheduled to begin from November 4-19, these dates will be clashing with both T20 leagues BPL and Global T20 league, while BPL starting from November 2 and its final will be played on December 10 and Global T20 league will start from November 3 to December 16.

    At least seven Pakistani players were expected to take part in the Global T20, with Wahab Riaz, Umar Akmal, Mohammad Nawaz, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Anwar Ali and Imad Wasim signed by various franchises. While the player list for the BPL is not yet out, Junaid Khan and Shahid Afridi had confirmed that they would take part in Bangladesh’s premier T20 competition.

    What will the players union be able to do if players have signed a contract which says they have to return for the national commitments?

    JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa was still awaiting notice from its counterparts in Pakistan about the participation of Pakistani players in the T20 Global League, after it emerged that the Pakistan Cricket Board could demand that those players participate in Pakistan’s domestic T20 competition, which overlaps with CSA’s much-hyped tournament.

    The T20 GL is set to start on November 3, with Pakistan’s tournament, the National T20 Cup scheduled to kick off the next day. On Thursday reports from Pakistan indicated that the PCB was considering calling back all its players, because it felt that its tournament held precedence over other T20 leagues.

    “I can say that the National T20 Cup will take precedence over other leagues,” Amjad Hussain, the PCB’s director for media and co-ordination, said.

    CSA refused to offer official comment on Thursday, though it is understood they are awaiting clarity from the PCB about the issue. The Pakistan tournament, was initially scheduled to be played at the end of August, but was subsequently moved to November. According to cricinfo.com, sponsorship rights for the tournament have been sold and it has to be played before the end of the year.


    Wahab Riaz, Umar Akmal, Mohammad Nawaz, Fakhar Zaman, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Hafeez, Anwar Ali, Junaid Khan and Imad Wasim were all signed by T20 Global League franchises - two of which - the Benoni Zalmi (three Pakistani players) and the Durban Qalandars (which signed two) - have direct tie ins with teams in the Pakistan competition. Should none of those players be available, the T20 GL rules will allow for players, who went undrafted at the recent player draft, to be picked up by franchises.

    Further controversy has emerged following the recent player draft, with up to half a dozen players understood to have put themselves forward for contracts in both the T20 Global League and the Bangladesh T20 tournament, which runs from 2 November to 10 December. Among those players is Junaid, who was picked up by the Nelson Mandela Bay Stars but already has a contract with the Kulna Titans in the Bangladesh Premier League.

    Junaid, it was reported, is unaware how his name got into the T20 GL draft. It is believed that CSA did attempt to warn owners of T20 GL teams about players being “booked” for drafts in separate T20 competitions and the possibility that those players could be forced to withdraw.

    All players who entered their names in the draft for the T20 GL signed binding agreements that they would participate only in the T20 GL at that time.

    #T20GL: Stellenbosch Kings not entirely sure on Hales, Wasim's availability

    CAPE TOWN - Eric Simons is elated that the ownership of the newly-named Stellenbosch Kings has been sorted out before the start of the T20 Global League, but now faces an anxious wait over player availability.

    The former Proteas coach, who is head coach Stephen Fleming’s assistant, has been actively involved in the formulation of the franchise in its current embryo state.

    With the Stellenbosch team being ownerless before Bollywood superstar Preity Zinta purchased the franchise this week, Simons has worked closely with Cricket South Africa’s operational staff to ensure that the team would be ready for their opening game against the Joburg Giants on 4 November.

    He was particularly busy at the inaugural player draft due to Fleming also not being able to attend, as the former Black Caps captain was still back home on holiday.

    Although the Stellenbosch side pulled the short straw in terms of only having the last pick in the international marquee draft with Sri Lankan seamer Lasith Malinga heading to Boland Park, the Kings completed some shrewd business the following day in the full draft.

    Besides investing in home-grown heroes like Justin Ontong and Henry Davids, the Winelands team also managed to land two massive overseas signings in the form of England’s opening batsman Alex Hales and Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim.

    Hales has been in sensational form in all formats of the game at domestic level recently, and the possibility of a recall to Test cricket for the Ashes tour to Australia at the end of the year seems a distinct possibility. This would, of course, then rule Hales out of the inaugural T20 Global League.

    “We’ll definitely be watching that Ashes squad selection with a great deal of interest,” Simons said. “Time will tell whether we will have Alex. We were very excited to get him in our first draft.”

    The situation surrounding Wasim’s participation is less clear. The all-rounder is the No 1 ranked T20 bowler and has been earmarked to play a major role in the Kings’ overall strategy, as the Pakistani left-arm spinner often bowls in the powerplay overs and at the death. There is, however, uncertainty that Wasim will be allowed to participate in the T20 Global League due to the Pakistan Cricket Board re-scheduling their own T20 competition over the same time period.

    At this stage CSA remain confident that the Pakistan players purchased in the draft will be available for the tournament, but Simons is understandably concerned about whether they will be allowed to replace the duo should the need arise.

    “It was one of our first questions because those are two important components for us as they (Hales and Wasim) were our first two picks. Cricket South Africa seems pretty confident that it will work,” Simons said

    “Obviously there is a lot of focus on the World XI (currently playing a T20 series against Pakistan in Lahore) right now and what’s going on there, but I think there is a sense of co-operation among all the countries that it will be fine.

    "We don’t have absolute clarity at this stage yet. The talk around injuries was that if you have an injury within the tournament you have to stay in the draft. But this is a unique situation.

    “They are both high-profile players. I think the circumstances are very different. Maybe they will let us go outside of the draft and see who is available. I think they will cross that bridge when the problem arises and hopefully the problem won’t arise.”
