I have valid NOC to play in DPL, says ex-Pak captain Yousuf
Karachi, May 7 (ANI): Clearing the confusion that was created by some of his own statements, former Pakistan captain and batsman Mohammad Yousuf has said that he has a valid No Objection Certificate (NOC) to play in the Dhaka League.
"The quote has created some misunderstanding, as it gave an impression that Victoria gave me the clearance without the consent of my previous club Mohammedan. In fact I was given the NOC by Mr Lutfur Rahman Badal when I was playing for Mohammedan," the Daily Times quoted Yousuf, as saying.
"Mr. Badal was then the cricket committee chairman of Mohammedan, but now he is the chairman of Victoria's governing body. I hope it will remove any confusion that was created by my comments," he said.
Yousuf was reportedly being investigated by Bangladesh intelligence agencies for allegedly submitting a fake clearance letter to play in the Dhaka league.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) apparently handed over the matter to the intelligence agencies after Yousuf appeared for the Victoria Sporting Club in the league against Abhani Club on March 28.
Abhani refused to play, claiming that the NOC submitted by Yousuf on behalf of his previous Mohammedan Club was a fake one.
Yousuf had earlier stated that he had no role to play in the whole issue. (ANI)
