Yusuf Pathan won’t play in the Hong Kong Twenty20 League as prior detailed.
Recently Yusuf said he had gotten a no-protest authentication from the BCCI to play for Kowloon Cantons in the second version of the competition. Be that as it may, the BCCI has now said it had never allowed Yusuf the NOC.
Yusuf did not react to this most recent advancement. On February 11, Yusuf had said he had gotten the NOC in an email from the BCCI despite the fact that he had not opened the mail. Yusuf said the Baroda Cricket Association, his state cricket body, had additionally given him the gesture to take an interest in the competition, which would be played from March 8 to 12. By chance, Tim Cutler, the Cricket Hong Kong CEO had expressed gratitude toward the BCCI for discharging Yusuf.
“Cricket Hong Kong and Kowloon Cantons can confirm that the NOC, which was issued for Yusuf Pathan to play in the DTC Hong Kong T20 Blitz has been revoked.
Fact is Yusuf wanted to participate as they invited him as a brand ambassador. If it was a Twenty20 league, we informed him that he cannot play. We have closed this matter and he is not going.”
