Karachi: With uncertainty looming large over the fate of cash-strapped Indian Cricket League, banned Pakistan all-rounders Abdul Razzak and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan have now expressed their desire to play for the national team once again.

The duo want to follow in the footsteps of senior batsman Mohammad Yousuf, who has submitted a written document to the Pakistan Cricket Board confirming that he would end his contract with the rebel league if considered for the national team again.

“Razzak and Rana will also be meeting the PCB officials soon to confirm they would leave the ICL if considered for national selection again,” a source close to the players said.

All the three players are expected to make an official announcement about terminating their contracts with the ICL by next week.

Sources said the PCB was also seriously considering their inclusion in the national team.

“It might not be possible for them to play in the one-day series against Australia from April 22 but definitely they are in line to be considered for the Twenty20 World Cup in England in June,” one source said. — PTI
