Karachi, Mar 30 (UNI) The PCB has decided that the players currently engaged with the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) will not be stopped from playing in English county cricket.

Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) chief operating officer Shafqat Naghmi said, ''Our policy on the ICL players is clear.

They are not contracted to us nor are they eligible to play in any tournament in Pakistan.

''But if they go and play county or shield cricket we can't stop them,'' he added.

Pakistan have lost 16 players to the ICL, a Twenty20 event which is currently in its second year.

The PCB has banned ICL players from playing domestic cricket and said the league's recruit will not be considered for national side too.

''We have no legal or moral reason to stop ICL players from playing in any event in any other country apart from Pakistan,'' he said.

''If anyone in any other country wants to play them it is their decision,'' he added.
