The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt has first time publicly admitted that he isn’t much impressed by the lucrative Indian Champions League, and he intends to save Pakistani players from that. During the era of Dr. Nasim Ashraf, who was in favor of the extravagant event, Ijaz Butt vehemently opposed PCB’s policy to send over the players to India for ICL, but he was over-ruled by the then chairman PCB, but now he has his say.
The new chairman of PCB has openly admitted discussing the ICL players’ case in the recently held ICC Executive Board meeting in Dubai, and he has also said that he would take the matter to the higher management of ICC, if needed again and again, and money is spoiling the game and the players.
The new chairman should take it easy. Pakistan players, who are engaged playing for the ICL and are performing well, may be seen playing for the national side again. Let the poor chaps earn a dime or two.More on:Champions League, icc, icl, Ijaz Butt, India, Nasim Ashraf, Pakistan, PCB
