PCB ready to facilitate players appearance in IPL

KARACHI - Pakistan Cricket Board would provide all possible support at its own end to players interested in playing in the Indian Premier League. 
However, whether the Pakistani players were selected in any of the 12 franchised teams would be the decision of the team owners and the Indian board, said the newly appointed Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed in his first interaction with local media here Saturday at the National Stadium. 
Chaudhry Anwar a member of the PCB governing board, who is also head of the PCB media committee and Nadeem Sarwar GM Media PCB also attended the media talk. 
Responding to queries on a number of issues put forth by a well attended media personnel, Subhan Ahmed, who started his association with the PCB 18 years ago here at the National Stadium, said, the PCB at its own end would help players get the NOC and any other documents needed to play in the IPL. He, however, added that no players had approached the PCB with any kind of request. 
The PCB, he said, had made contacts with the BCCI on the issue but the Indian cricket authorities had not come back to the PCB in the matter. 
Subhan Ahmed confidently fielded questions on all matters including coming hearing of three players in Doha but said there were a number of issues on which he could speak openly and frankly but he could not answer on some certain issues because of the sensivities involved. 
He avoided giving answers on the coming hearings of Salman Butt, Muhammad Aamer and Muhammad Asif. He also, when asked, did not disclose the names of the players whom the ICC had advised not to be considered for selection for the world cup saying that though he knew the names and the number of players but he could not give that information because he could not do so because of the confidential nature of the information.
