Mohammad Yousuf is in ethical trouble for sure. Money is not a problem for him, because Pakistan Cricket Board is taking the brunt for him, and all the legal fee and other expenditure to fight off Indian Cricket League would be bear by the PCB.
Mohammad Yousuf is the premier batsman for Pakistan, and he is the only batsman who can be trusted to some extent, though he too just screws the team very badly at occasions, but he is little ray of light in the total darkness. PCB got a near heart stroke, when Yousuf announced to join ICL. There were multiple reasons behind his that decision. First, he was cajoled and sparked by Inzamam-ul-haq, who was ignominiously ousted from the team, and Inzi tried to took revenge by evicting Yousuf off the national team.
Inzi succeeded in ejecting Abdul Razzaq and Imran Farhat permanently, but PCB managed to bring Yousuf back in exchange of millions of rupees. Another reason why Yousuf joined ICL was his not inclusion in the squad of Twenty20 World Cup, which wasn’t right, but it didn’t mean that Yousaf join the rival’s camp. Though money has brought Yousuf back into the team, he has lost his esteem in front of the nation considerably and he is only tolerated because there is no bench strength available to the Pakistan team courtesy to the ill-planning and lack of vision on the part of the cricket board.
Now ICL is after Mohammad Yousuf and rightly so. They know the value of this star batsman, and they don’t want to give him an easy way out. They know that this precedence could really choke them, as other players would certainly like to take a leaf out of Yousuf’s book, and ICL would become a nice and bountiful blackmailing tool for the players’ world over. It’s obvious that there is nothing much ICL could do but it could certainly sling lots of mud upon Yousuf, and no money can stop that. ICL plans to hold its first tournament with six teams from 30th November.More on:icl, India, Inzamam, Mohammad Yousuf, Pakistan, PCB
