Pakistani players are wanted for the first season of Major League Cricket.
According to a story in local media, the Major Cricket League (MCL) has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for permission for Pakistani players to play in the first season of the league.
The PCB agreed to the MCL management’s request, but only if the players met a certain requirement.
The story also said that the PCB asked the MCL management to pay each player $25,000 to play in the league.
Before making a final choice, the MCL management asked for some time to think about this need.
The six-team MLC event will be held in Dallas from July 13 to 30. It has already drawn a lot of well-known players from all over the world.
Jason Roy gave up his contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) so he could play in the first Twenty20 event in the United States.
“The ECB have agreed to let him play in the competition (MLC) as long as he gives up the rest of his ECB incremental contract,” the ECB said on Thursday.
“The ECB wants to make it clear that Jason can still play for England teams after this decision. We are completely sure that Jason is committed to England cricket.”
Roy said he would never “walk away from England” in a post on social media.
“The ECB has been clear and helpful when we’ve talked about me playing in Major League Cricket. Roy said, “The ECB was fine with me playing in the competition as long as they didn’t have to pay me for the rest of the contract year.”
