As PCB denies his participation in BPL 2024, Mohammad Haris faces embarrassment in Bangladesh

Mohammad Haris is set to return from Dhaka without taking part in the Bangladesh Premier League after the Pakistan Cricket Board declined to issue him a No Objection Certificate. Haris had arrived in Dhaka with the intention of representing Chattogram Challengers in the BPL’s tenth edition. However, his request for an NOC was denied by the PCB, citing his participation in two leagues since July 2023 as the reason.
Similarly, NOCs were also withheld for Saim Ayub, Zaman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, and Iftikhar Ahmed, preventing their participation in the BPL. Fakhar had been signed by Fortune Barishal, Iftikhar and Zaman by Comilla Victorians, and Saim Ayub by Durdanto Dhaka.
Meanwhile, Babar Azam, Mohammad Wasim Junior, Mohammad Rizwan, and Abbas Afridi have been allowed to participate in the ongoing BPL 2024. Earlier, PCB chief selector Wahab Riaz emphasized the importance of Pakistani players participating in local tournaments instead of playing in franchise-based leagues.
