PCB recalls players from CPL, county cricket assignments

The players will now have to report to Pakistan chief coach Arthur for a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy on August 22

"I believe we can raise standard of our game by investing on domestic cricket rather than playing against India".

The board had originally given as many as 10 players, including seven centrally contracted cricketers, permission to play the entire Caribbean Premier League - which began on August 4 and runs until September 9.

Sethi made the promise after being elected chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a three-year term.

Pakistan's deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had appointed Sethi as member of the board of governors last month.

ICC had granted Pakistan to host a series against World XI, comprising of top players from the cricketing fraternity in late September, but owing to Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan in UAE (starting from September 24), the series is likely to be held in mid September.

A team of worldwide cricket stars is scheduled to visit Pakistan for three T20 matches in September.

"The series has been brought forward to mid-September because the Punjab government wants it to be held before the NA120 election on September 17".

The players have been asked to report to head coach Mickey Arthur at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on August 22 for fitness and medical screening followed by participation in the national T20 tournament and preparatory camp under the supervision of Pakistan team management.

In order to consolidate measures to ensure the return of global cricket in Pakistan, ICC had confirmed sending a World XI for a three-match T20 series to be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
