    Shaheen Shah Afridi, Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Hasnain offered BBL contracts, awaiting NOC from PCB

    Good news for all 3 - Shaheen Shah Afridi, Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Hasnain - should get them good experience and also financially rewarding.

    Something Amir should also be looking for now.

    This is really good considering that the World T20 is in Australia next year. Just hope this doesn't disrupt them from playing first class cricket too becuase they all need to

    very nice.... although i personally dont want to see SSA and Hussnain focusing on T20 but a couple of seasons at this young age shouldnt effect them much. and bcz its BBL, will be a great experience. the young guns shld be kept away from CPL and T10 league and bla bla... 1 guy who shld get most out of this is faheem as he can benefit from this not only as a bowler but also as a batsman.

    Very good news. BBL is a class apart from the other leagues, they'll be exposed to very good coaches.

    They wont get the NOC since they will be needed to play domestic i guess.
    But could have been a great experience considering the World t20 is in Australia next year.

    Lol, tricky situation for PPers.

    First,

    "PCB announces that without playing domestic tournaments, nobody will be selected in international cricket" - PPers: woahhhh that's freaking awesome! To hell with leagues! Domestic cricket is important!!

    Later,

    "Players secure BBL contracts, conflicting with domestic cricket" - PPers: what a great league and tournament, massive chance to gain great experience. Must play!

    Doesn't the QeA trophy start in September this year? won't it be done long before January?


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    I'm not sure, and I think PCBs announcement was for the whole domestic season. Not only for the tournament.

    All three will be most likely in the WT20 squad. It will be a good opportunity to get a taste of playing in Australia before the WT20.

    As long as it doesn't affect them by clashing with playing in the domestic games, they should be given NOC.

    Great opportunity that PCB shouldn't miss out on. I know domestic cricket is important but I think an exception can be made in this case especially with the WT20 on the horizon

    That's what happens with foolish decisions like "playing domestic season is mandatory for selection".

    PPers jumped on that bandwagon and started praising the PCB for it.

    But people are now realizing it's unrealistic and doesn't make sense in this era. You cannot tie and force your players like that.

    If people are gonna be given such permissions, there's no point in having that 'mandatory' foolish decision. Nobody would prefer playing domestic cricket over playing in league or county cricket.

    PCB MUST BLOCK Shaheen & Hasnain from the poisoned chalice - T20 Cricket. BBL exposure, high level coaching, International company/mentoring, learning opportunity …… MY FOOT. Bowlers are not going to learn ANYTHING from T20 cricket - BBL exposure is absolutely useless unless the fundamentals of bowling are nurtured - that's bowling skills with intelligence, bowling discipline, working out a batsman, stamina, endurance and developing body for managing work load of 23-25 overs in a day (+ over 2 hours net, even on game days). Tell me, which of this is required in T20, let alone developed through the joke.

    I wrote something similar 3 years back when PP was excited about Shadab playing BBL - it really came back harshly to bite back. Hasnain & Shaheen's case might not take 3 years, because like Shadab they can't bat, neither field. I thought example of one Hasan Ali was enough for PP - T20 is a curse for PAK cricket, the earlier PCB realizes that, the recovery from current state will be faster.

    Well said.

    Same people who were excited at making domestic cricket mandatory now want to make exceptions for BBL.

    The BBL is an exciting opportunity for players in their mid 20s who are peaking, especially when there's a WT20 in the following year. However it is not what's needed for young players. Unless they're playing in the Shield, there's no point in this other than £££.

    He's got potential. Big bash teams must be interested since he did make it tough for Finch and Khawaja when they played earlier in the UAE this year even though he didn't take many wickets

    18-19 year old guy bowling at 152 kph rarely goes without being rated as its something rare. Yes he needs to work of his seam position, direction and planning an over but teenager with such pace will always be rated. However, if even after 3-4 years he has the same weaknesses and doesnt improve then nobody will rate him as his rating is based upon the potential he has.

    Yeah I would not be in favour of those 2, especially Shaheen missing the QeA trophy. Why is there still no schedule for the Qea trophy?

    People need to let go of this fascination with domestic cricket, our domestic structure isn't even professional level, look at England for example, most of their players have played like 2/3 domestic games in the last 5 years since getting central contracts, we need to move forward not backwards, BBL exposure will be amazing.

    Rather than Faheem it should have been Babar as am sure he will get a few as he is doing well currently in England where as Faheem isn't.

    I came to post something like this lol.

    Development is not bowling 4 overs. Would be better if they played first class cricket.

    Once you become an established star then there is nothing wrong skipping domestic cricket like those central contracted players of England. Shaheen and Afrdi are under 20 and can improve their game by playing four day cricket.

    Shadab has been average because of almost zero four day cricket since his debut
