Malik, Kamran denied permission to play in Bangladesh

ESPNcricinfo staff

Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal and former captain Shoaib Malik have been denied permission by the PCB to play league cricket in Bangladesh.

Following their exclusion from Pakistan's squad for the tour of New Zealand after the PCB's Integrity Committee did not "give them clearance", Akmal and Malik's requests for no-objection certificates to the board for playing in Bangladesh have also been rejected.

"I was very keen to go and play in the Bangladesh league but the board has told us to just focus on playing in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in domestic cricket," Kamran told reporters. "I had got a good offer and wanted to go and play there but unfortunately the clearance has not come."

Both had questioned the PCB for leaving them out of the team touring New Zealand. Kamran had been cleared for selection by the ICC after he had written to them asking if he was under investigation for any corruption.

Along with Salman Butt, who has been provisionally suspended by the ICC for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing controversy, Akmal was sent a notice by the ICC during the tour of England in August seeking information about events related to the 2010 World Twenty20 held in the Caribbean in May.

Last month, Pakistani news channel Geo TV aired footage featuring alleged bookmaker Mazhar Majeed claiming Kamran was among seven players obeying his orders during matches. Kamran admitted Majeed was his marketing agent but denied that he had been involved in any wrongdoing.

Kamran was also dropped following the Sydney Test earlier in the year for his poor wicketkeeping and again during the tour of England in August for the second Test. Malik, like Kamran, has been in good form in the domestic first-class tournament but hasn't found a place in the national team since August this year.

Good for Bangladesh cricket. Also good that PCB stopped them 'cause BCB doesn't have the balls to do that.

They were looking for some easy money. Good to see they were not allowed.
However, according to PA, its ICC who denied PCB's plea for clearance and then PCB did not give permission to these players !

বাংলাদেশে খেলতেও মালিক, কামরানকে আইসিসির ‘না’ (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date/2010-12-11/news/115010)

আইসিসির অনুমতি না পাওয়ায় নিউজিল্যন্ড সফরে দলে শোয়েব মালিক ও কামরান আকমলকে নিতে পারেননি পাকিস্তানি নির্বাচকেরা। এরপর আবেদন করা হয়েছিল বাংলাদেশের লিগ ক্রিকেটে খেলতে এ দুই ক্রিকেটারকে অনুমতি দেওয়ার জন্য। তবে পাকিস্তান ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের সেই আবেদনও ফিরিয়ে দিয়েছে ক্রিকেটের সর্বোচ্চ সংস্থাটি।

স্পট ফিক্সিংয়ের সুনির্দিষ্ট অভিযোগ থাকায় আইসিসির সাময়িক বহিষ্কারাদেশে আছেন সালমান বাট, মোহাম্মদ আমির ও মোহাম্মদ আসিফ। এ ঘটনায় উইকেটরক্ষক কামরান ও সাবেক অধিনায়ক মালিকেরও সংশ্লিষ্টতা ছিল বলে অভিযোগ রয়েছে।

ক্রিকইনফো জানায়, বাংলাদেশে আসার অনুমতি না পাওয়ায় দুঃখ প্রকাশ করে কামরান আকমল আজ সাংবাদিকদের বলেন, ‘আমি খুবই উদগ্রীব ছিলাম। চেয়েছিলাম বাংলাদেশে লিগ ক্রিকেট খেলতে। কিন্তু বোর্ড আমাদের শুধু ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটে মনোনিবেশ করতে বলেছে।’

They wanted to come for a rehab. I feel sorry for those Pak cricketers. They could've learned how to play honestly & fairly from BD players.

nice redemption for moral lapses.

December 11, 2010, 09:07 PM
lets not bash the Pakistani's or the Players. They wanted to come and play. but its the HEADLESS CHICKENS of PCB who doesnt know anything about cricket yet they are running a board. im sure These PCB officials are the most illiterate and unqualified people to run any organisation. After them comes BCB. So abuse the one that deserves to be abused ...not the players or the general people. We wouldnt want to be abused(or our players) by anyone just because BCB officials are morons.

so play fair

December 11, 2010, 09:21 PM
Well I'm actually glad they won't come given their history! Both of them have suspect characters. We wouldn't want to pollute our cricket.
