Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has called on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to restrict players from participating in numerous domestic Twenty20 competitions.
Sarfraz attributed his request to Pakistan’s hectic schedule and the fact that they need to prepare for the 2019 World Cup.
“We must stop players from playing too many leagues, we have a busy schedule ahead, including important series in the months to come and the World Cup next year,” Sarfraz was quoted as saying by the Daily Times. “The PCB will decide what leagues a player should participate [in].”
Meanwhile, Sarfraz admitted that the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) provides an excellent platform for young players to showcase their talent and make a name for themselves.
“PSL has become a talent factory, Pakistan got several players from the two previous PSL editions and I am sure talented players will continue to emerge. Those who will utilise this opportunity will surely come forward,” the 30-year-old said.
