Azam Khan Denies NOC to Participate in UAE’s ILT20 Tournament

Pakistan cricketer Azam Khan has been denied the NOC to play in the UAEs ILT20 tournament. The league will take place between January 6 and February 12. The former legend is the son of Moin Khan. He is currently suspended from international cricket after being denied the NOC.

Babar Azam

Babar Azam Khan was denied NOC to participate in the UAEs ITL20 tournament after being denied by the Pakistan Cricket Board. Azam is the son of legendary Pakistani cricketer Moin Khan. His absence from the UAEs ILT20 tournament will likely cause some consternation among Pakistani cricket fans. However, Azam will likely be back in Pakistan soon, as the upcoming season of the PSL is expected to start in February 2023.

It is unclear why the PCB rejected Azam Khan’s application to play in the league, as he was one of the few Pakistani players in the draft. The PCB informed the tournament organizers that Azam Khan did not have a valid NOC to participate in the league. However, the PCB has said it will not appeal the decision, and Azam Khan can play in the tournament as a guest.

Babar Azam Khan has appealed this decision, but the PCB has not yet explained why. All Pakistani players need the approval of the PCB to play in international competitions, and a refusal to issue a NOC will result in massive financial loss for the Pakistani team. In addition, the UAE and CSA leagues offer huge amounts of money to the players, so it is in Pakistan’s best interest to seek a NOC before playing overseas.

The PCB has a right to refuse players entry into the UAE International League. Still, the board has justified its decision by saying the league is a “national duty” and not a commercial venture. The UAE International League has contacted several Pakistani players to participate in its T20 tournament and offered them 120 million to 140 million PKR for their services. The players are furious that the PCB has refused their participation, and a recent report on ESPNcricinfo shows that their frustration is growing among top Pakistan cricket players.

Babar Azam Khan was among the players previously denied a NOC. The list has been updated to include him and Shahnawaz Dahani, who signed with the UAE-based ILT20 league. While the list is far from complete, the list has been updated to include Azam Khan, Mohammad Rizwan, and Asif Ali. No Pakistani player can play in the BBL without the approval of the PCB.

Shaheen Shah Afridi

The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided not to issue any NOC to its players to play in the UAE International League T20 scheduled for early next year. The reason behind this stance is the busy domestic and international calendar. Players without contracts are not allowed to play domestic or international cricket. Two prominent Pakistan players had formally applied for NOCs but have yet to respond to the board’s decision.

In a statement, Shaheen Shah Afridi denied the NOC request and said if players are picked for the draft, it will be a disgrace for the game. The PCB had offered compensation to the players, but the contract did not include the clause. The players signed the contract on the condition that discussion regarding the NOCs would resume after the Asia Cup.

While some players felt that participating in the UAEs ILT20 would benefit their careers, the Pakistan Cricket Board has not supported the initiative. The PCB has raised concerns about the disadvantages of increasing the number of T20 leagues in the region. The PCB has also been trying to prevent Pakistani players from participating in associated countries. Some star players have already been rejected because of this attitude.

Other rejected players from the UAEs ILT20 include Asif Ali, Trent Boult, and Shahnawaz Dahan. The PCB has yet to determine the reason for the decision. Refusing the NOC could lead to big financial losses for the players. The salaries for these players are very high in both the CSA and the UAE, and the refusal to issue a NOC could cost Pakistani cricket a great deal of money.

Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi have been called up for the Big Bash League. But the PCB cannot approve any player for the Big Bash League without the nominated PCB. Shaheen Shah Afridi will be available for the first T20 World Cup 2022 warm-up game against England.

Mohammad Rizwan

Pakistan Cricket Board has denied NOC to two-star cricketers for their failure to play the UAEs ILT20. The UAE International League had contacted Pakistan’s top players and offered them 120-140 million PKR each to participate in the league. The PCB justified its decision by stating that two-star players had already applied for the NOC but were turned down by the PCB. The two other players did not contact the PCB after the rejection. The PCB is only obligated to compensate players if the league is held during the off-season.

In addition, the PCB has refused to issue No Objection Certificates to Pakistani players who will be playing in the BBL. The PCB has a busy domestic and international calendar and has decided not to issue NOCs for these players. This means they will not be able to participate in the UAEs ILT20 tournament or Cricket South Africa’s new T20 league.

Despite the PCB refusing to issue NOCs to Pakistani players, a dozen Category C and D players signed their contracts immediately. However, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, and Hasan Ali refused to sign. They demanded further clarification on whether they would be able to play in major upcoming T20 tournaments and whether they will be able to sign endorsement contracts for cricket teams.

However, the PCB denied NOCs to Pakistan players for the UAE International League T20, scheduled to take place in January from February 12, 2023. While the players could not play in the league, they will participate in the 2023 edition of the Pakistan Super League. They will also play two home series against New Zealand and the West Indies during the ILT20.

Due to national duties, the PCB has refused to give Mohammad Rizwan a NOC to play in the UAEs ILT20. The PCB also wants to keep Pakistani players from playing in the leagues of other affiliated countries. It is not surprising, however, that some retired Pakistani cricketers have been permitted to play in the ILT20 league. Two of them have already received lucrative offers from the UAE League franchise. However, due to the PCB’s attitude, the UAE League franchises have decided not to take any chances with Pakistani cricketers.

Azam Khan

Pakistani cricketer Azam Khan has been denied a NOC to play in the Emirates T20 League. He was the only Pakistani cricketer signed to the Desert Vipers, the only franchise outside India. This decision came as a surprise to Azam Khan, who claimed that he had no idea about his NOC status.

The PCB has denied Pakistan cricketer Azam Khan permission to play in UAE’s ILT20. Khan was the only player signed to a non-Indian franchise, the Desert Vipers, and was, therefore, the only player in Pakistan. The 24-year-old wicketkeeper and batter will be the only Pakistani player at the ILT20, beginning early next year.

The UAE T20 League is scheduled to start in January 2023 and has multi-year ICC approval. The tournament will feature six franchise teams, each with its roster of international and UAE players. The roster will feature players like Lahiru Kumara, Seekugge Prasanna, Colin Ingram, and Kennar Lewis. The league is slated to include 34 matches.

Despite the rejection of Pakistan’s request to participate in ILT20, there are still a few opportunities for Pakistani cricketers to make the most of their talents. In addition to Azam Khan, Sri Lankan Wanindu Hasaranga has also signed on to play in the ILT20. The eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League is tentatively scheduled to begin after the ILT20.
