KARACHI (Monitoring Desk): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that their centrally contracted players will not be part of the upcoming inaugural season of Kashmir Premier League (KPL). While speaking to BBC Urdu, PCB’s Director Media Samiul Hasan Burney said that managing the workload of Pakistan’s national players remains a priority for PCB ahead of T20 World Cup.
“Pakistan centrally contracted players will not be part of Kashmir Premier League since they are currently in West Indies. After the West Indies tour, Pakistan has series coming up against Afghanistan and England, so players’ workload needs to be managed as well,” Burney said.
“PSL remains Pakistan’s premier event whereas National T20 Cup is a domestic event. KPL is a private league and only retired players are taking part in it,” he added. KPL is scheduled from August 6-16, 2021, in Muzaffarabad.
