KARACHI: National cricketer Azam Khan has been denied no-objection certificate — pre-requisite for participation in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) — by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Azam, who is currently representing Overseas Warriors in the second edition of the Kashmir Premier League (KPL), requested for an NOC from PCB.
Sources privy to the matter told Geo Super that PCB rejected Azam’s NOC request. Meanwhile, other requests were approved and players got NOC for CPL.
A former Test cricketer, on a condition of anonymity, reacted to this matter and termed it as “injustice” with the young player.
“Rejecting NOC is injustice with any player. It is the duty of PCB to issue NOC to players whenever needed,” he said.
As per PCB’s policy, national players are allowed to participate in three international leagues apart from Pakistan Super League (PSL).
