The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has granted No Objection Certificates (NOC’s) to five players to participate in the 2019 Global T20 Canada League.
These five players include all-rounder Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez, fast-bowler Wahab Riaz, spinner Shadab Khan and hard-hitter Umar Akmal.
Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi is also likely to participate in the league. However, Afridi does not require an NOC from the board as he is a retired player.
Apart from that, Fakhar Zaman has also reportedly requested for an NOC but is yet to get a response from the PCB.
The T20 league will commence from 25th July and will be held in Ontario. The final of the tournament will be played on 11th August.
