Pakistan need to manage the workload of their leading players in the same way India have done with Virat Kohli, meaning they are even less likely to appear in the T10 League and UAE T20x in future.
That is the view of Ehsan Mani, the new chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, who wants to enforce the policy of permitting their contracted players to play in just one Twenty20 league, other than the Pakistan Super League.
India currently do not allow any of their stars to play in leagues other than the Indian Premier League, a policy Mani termed “commendable”. Kohli has even been rested from international duty for the ongoing Asia Cup.
Mani said the PCB has a duty to protect their players’ welfare, as well as their own reputation.
