PSL 4: PCB takes important decision over foreign players drafting

LAHORE - It is decided in a recent PCB Meeting that players who are not willing to travel to Pakistan would not be drafted in the competition and those players who are willing to come to play in Pakistan would not be given additional or compensational fees.

During the meeting, the franchises also submitted their complaints over the level of umpiring seen during PSL3 and have asked the board to improve upon that in the next edition.

The PCB, meanwhile, suggested that the franchises should improve the bonuses of the players, with recommendations for tax deductions even from the salaries of foreign players.

The third edition of the Pakistan Super League had its final in Karachi, signaling the return of top-level cricket to the city after nearly a decade since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team bus.

The two knockout play-off games of the tournament, meanwhile, took place at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Cricket is slowly returning to the country and Sethi has insisted that he wants the entire PSL to come to Pakistan sooner rather than later.

Recent successful hosting of international matches — against World XI, Sri Lanka and the West Indies — in Pakistan mean franchises are now in a stronger position to convince their players to come to Pakistan.
