    Pakistan Super League: Indian players want to take part, says PCB official – The Express Tribune

    KARACHI: At a time when India and Bangladesh have refused to play in Pakistan, their players have contacted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in order to take part in the Pakistan Super League which is scheduled to get underway in March.

    The PSL looks set to kick off from March 26 at two different venues in Pakistan – possibly Lahore and Karachi. While refusing to share the names of those foreign players interested in the league, a PCB official confirmed that the interest was there.

    “The Bangladesh board doesn’t want to send its national team to Pakistan but some top Bangladesh players have contacted us to become a part of the PSL,” a senior PCB official told The Express Tribune. “Four Indian players are also interested in playing and have already submitted their applications to their board and their IPL franchises to allow them to take part.”

    The official added that a maximum of 30 foreign players will be bought to become part of the five-team event with each franchise having the luxury of six players out of which only four can be part of the playing-XI. The rest of the squad, and playing-XI, will comprise local players. The official stressed that only top players will be brought as they want to ensure the standard of the league.

    “The event has been kept short to ensure that we attract maximum players and our competition isn’t affected largely due to the IPL,” he claimed.

    The board has got a huge boost by roping in former International Cricket Council’s chief executive Haroon Lorgat, whose rapport has been a great help in building connections.

    ‘Greenidge, Emburey interested in coaching’

    The official said that former greats have shown interest in becoming head coaches of the five franchises while former Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson has also indicated that he is thrilled to return to Pakistan.

    “West Indian great Gordon Greenidge, John Emburey, Lawson and Alvin Kallicharran all want to work as head coaches as they don’t have any security concerns with travelling to Pakistan,” added the official before confirming that local coaches will be considered for top positions and support staff of the teams as well.

    It has also been learnt that the banking sector and corporate houses have shown interest in buying franchises while a Pakistani-American billionaire, thought to be Shahid Khan who also owns an NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars, has shown interest as well.

    @ WHO ever posted this

    Statutory warning :- This IS A HOAX PROPAGANDA / THE LIMIT AND LEVEL OF UTTER NONSENSE

    WHY? n HOW?

    5 Reasons for this As Follows :-

    1. In a country where Blood Bath is a daily routine who sends their players.........

    2. Certainly not from India, the country who is seen as future target by ISI , JeM, HuJI, LET aka Hafiz Seed ( Jihadi Bhaijaan won't send his "LASHKAR" to India India is stupid enough to send its players to Pak WOW)....The future country for whom Pakis r already preparing to strike with Infiltration attempts n cross border firings,

    3. As it is IPL has taken its toll on Indian players.....Cricket Fans in India r already angry demanding to scrap the IPL Series tournament...Cricket fans in India r not dumb... they know what IPL did to their world cup / world class playing team...See the example of Guys like Yuvi, Raina, Kohli, and Good for nothing Shewag.....

    4. In short Indians now think that there players only play for money and actually the quality of indian cricket has seriously gone down.......Thanks to great IPL. So they go for PaKI IPL seriously doubtful......

    5. Where is the time for Indian cricketers to play for ur T20 Series league. The Slot of Indian Cricket Series n schedule is the busiest in the world.....across all Field of sports and different gaming formats...courtesy greedy BCCI....

    if they take part in Pak they will never be playing in India. Plus with daily bomb blast you guys have to give foreign players bullet proof armor all the time.

    I dont think BCCI will allow this, they din't give clearance for Bigbash, PSL is out of question. Interesting to see if foreign players do participate cause security situation doesn't looks good in Pak.
