Pakistan Cricket Board has granted Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi and Umar Akmal permission to play a few games at this season’s Big Blash League, on the request of Cricket Australia.
Shahid Afridi thr Pakistan all-rounder has said he will not play for Sydeny Thunder despite being given permission by Pakistan Cricket Board to take part in Big Bash League. Afridi said he wanted to play in Pakistan’s domestic T20 tournament Faysal Bank T20 Cup instead and that clashes with Big Bash League.
Sydeny Sixers terminated Umar Akmal’s contract. Sixers were unhappy to have Akmal’s original three game stint cut to one and are now looking elsewhere. Adelaide Strikers are intended to call on Saeed Ajmal for only the first game of the tournament and then regain him for the final stages.
