Lahore, Feb 8 (UNI) Speedster Shoiab Akhtar has signed a memorandum of understanding with the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL), dumping the BCCI-backed IPL, according to sources.
Moin Khan, a representative of the ICL here, said he could not comment on Shoaib's intentions but confirmed the fast bowler was made an offer last year when the ICL had started acquiring players for its tournament.
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq along with Imran Farhat, Taufiq Umar, Abdul Razzaq, Shabbir Ahmed and Azhar Mahmood, are already associated with the ICL.
However, Moin Khan confirmed that the ICL was still looking to sign around nine more players from Pakistan and negotiations were continuing with them.
''There is a proposal to field one team of Pakistani players in the next league and we need more players to add to the six we already have with us,'' he said.
