Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to restrict players under contracts in terms of their participation in the international leagues, media reports said on Thursday.
According to details, the condition of ‘two leagues per year’ came under discussion during a meeting which was chaired by PCB chairman Najam Sethi and attended by Haroon Rasheed, Mudassar Nazar, Shakil Sheikh, Subhan Ahmed and Naila Bhatti and others.
The senior officials of the cricket board discussed various proposals for drafting new rules pertaining to players’ participation in domestic and foreign leagues.
Media reports claimed PCB may restrict players under contracts to play not more than two leagues annually, with the inclusion of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
A final report on the recommendations will be submitted to the PCB chairman in the next few days for formal approval.
It was agreed in the meeting that domestic cricket structure will remain unchanged, but an increment in fees for regional players was approved.
It was also agreed that the national selection committee will have a greater say in the selection of regional teams for domestic tournaments.
The meeting discussed that local leagues with media and commercial rights would be regulated to meet certain conditions regarding anti-corruption measures, selection of players’ sponsors and fee payment.
