Karachi, Dec 18(ANI): Out-of-favour Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal is looking forward to play in the Bangladesh League.
"I'm hoping to get clearance from the PCB. The board is only stopping players who are part of the team and since I'm not playing for Pakistan right now, I'm confident that I'll get the NOC. I'm scheduled to leave for Bangladesh next week," The Express Tribune quoted Akmal, as saying.
The PCB has banned Test players, including Younus Khan, Shoaib Malik, Imran Farhat, Mohammad Hafeez and Abdul Rehman from playing in the league to avoid burnout and possible injuries ahead of the Test series against England.
Akmal said the league would give him a good chance to gain international exposure.
"Bangladesh will be hosting the Asia Cup and if I'm recalled for that, my stint in the league can help a lot," Akmal added.
Bangladesh League organizers have approached Pakistan cricketers Wahab Riaz, Umar Akmal, Sohail Tanveer, Umar Amin, Qaiser Abbas and Nasir Jamshed to play in the tournament.
But a PCB official said the board has not yet granted a no objection certificate to any player for taking part in the league. (ANI)
