PCB allow the Pakistani Players for BBL this season

Saeed Ajmal and Umer Akmal will miss the last round of national domestic cricket:

Shahid Afridi, the Pakistan allrounder, has said he will not play for Sydney Thunder despite being given permission by the PCB to take part in Australia's Big Bash League. Afridi said he wanted to play in Pakistan's domestic Twenty20 tournament instead and that clashes with Australia's Twenty20 competition.

"I have ended my contract in the Big Bash League, because I want to play in the national event to improve my form and justify my selection in the team," Afridi told AFP.

The Pakistan board had earlier granted Saeed Ajmal, Umar Akmal and Afridi permission to play a few games at this season's Big Bash, on the request of Cricket Australia. Ajmal and Akmal will miss the last round of Pakistan's domestic Twenty20 tournament and will return in time for the conditioning camp in Lahore ahead of the India tour.

"We have reconsidered our decision, on the request of Cricket Australia, as the players had already signed their contract,"PCB. "They will now leave at the tail end of [Pakistan's] T20 tournament, which runs from December 2 to 10, and will return when our conditioning camp starts."
