“With current standing of the league, it is obvious that the league is heading in wrong direction and we cannot allow Pakistani players to be misused for vested interests of foreign individuals,” he said.
Mr Salman Iqbal suggested that proper system and monitoring should be in place under the supervision of the ICC to safeguard all players and the sanctity of the game.
“I believe it is better for me to part ways with an unsupervised T10 league,” he concluded.
