The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has provisionally granted Inzamam-ul-Haq the permission to purchase any team in the T10 League besides him being appointed as the mentor of Lahore Qalandars. The Chief Selector of the Pakistan Cricket Team recently met with PCB Chairman Najam Sethi to request for the allowance for the two projects.

According to reports, PCB has provisionally allowed Inzy to buy a team in the inaugural T10 League apart from handling the mentorship of the Lahore Qalandars. Apparently, Pakistan Super League franchise Lahore Qalandars have been interested in obtaining the services of the former Pakistan captain while Inzamam is eager to purchase a team in the TCL which is scheduled to be held in UAE.

According to the negotiations, Inzamam will not receive his monthly salary from the Cricket Board while being a part of the Lahore Qalandars as a mentor. Also, Inzamam will be prohibited to sit in the dugouts like Sir Vivan Richards – the mentor of the Quetta Gladiators or during the players’ draft.

“If the PCB feels Inzamam’s services are needed for the national team during the period of the two events, the chief selector will be asked to report for national duty,” claimed an anonymous source close to the matter according to Dawn News.

Mushtaq Ahmed to follow the same instruction

Furthermore, it is learnt that National Cricket Academy (NCA) bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed has also been granted the permission to coach a T10 Cricket League team which is scheduled to be held in between December 21 to 24 at Sharjah.

The same law has been applied for Mushtaq as well. Similarly, Mushtaq Ahmed will not be receiving any salary for the month during his tenure in the T10 League.

The T10 league is being held in Sharjah next month, in which retired and current cricketers from around the world, including Shahid Afridi, Virender Sehwag, Kumar Sangakkara and Eoin Morgan, are also participating.
