Violation of Central Contract, PCB’s decision to take strict action against Mohammad Haris

Mohammad Haris had played his quota of 2 T20 leagues, and hence, he did not get NOC for the third league.

  PCB has decided to take strict action against the national team’s wicketkeeper, Mohammad Haris, for violating the central contract. According to the details, Bangladesh Premier League management has sent Pakistani opener Mohammad Haris back from Dhaka. Mohammad Haris evaded the Pakistan Cricket Board and went to Bangladesh. Despite not getting NOC, he came to Dhaka to play Bangladesh Premier League and also practised for 2 days with the Chittagram Challenges team.

The league management stopped Mohammad Haris from playing the match without NOC and sent him back. In a story on the social media platform Instagram, Haris shared a picture showing his packed bag and the planned travel route back to Peshawar.

The image also featured emojis depicting a house and a zipped mouth, perhaps expressing their dismay at the turn of events.

Muhammad Haris had played his quota of 2 T20 leagues, and he did not get the NOC for the third one. Mohammad Haris participated in the Global T20 Canada tournament in July, after which he joined the Lankan Premier League in August 2023. The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to take strict action against the wicketkeeper for violating the central contract.

Meanwhile, Babar Azam, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Mohammad Rizwan, and Abbas Afridi will start their journey from Christchurch to Dhaka on Monday. Rizwan will showcase his skills with Comilla Victorians, Babar Azam will be seen in action for Rangpur Riders, and Mohammad Wasim Jr. is set to represent Khulna Tigers. Abbas Afridi will join Shoaib Malik in Fortune Barishal.

Players like Usman Qadir, Faheem Ashraf, and Khushdil Shah are already participating in the BPL 2024 season starting from January 19. Interestingly, wicketkeeper-batsman Azam Khan has also participated in two leagues (GT20 Canada and Caribbean Premier League) since July 2023. Still, he has been dropped for the ongoing second season of the International League T20 (ILT20). NOC has been issued. As Azam is not under a central contract, he is not bound by the same obligation as Harris, who only has a central contract to play in two leagues.
