Lahore, Aug.14 (ANI): After middle order batsman Mohammad Yousuf and bowlers Rana Naved-ul- Hassan and Abdul Razzaq, another Pakistani batsman, Imran Farhat has decided to quit the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) to facilitate his come back in the national team.

Farhat said he missed playing for country and would soon apply for a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the ICL.

"I want to play cricket and I love to play for my country," said Farhat.

Regretting joining the ICL, the 27 year old batsman said joining the rebel league was a mistake which he realized later on.

"I realized it when I found that playing for the ICL meant one would play just one tournament in a year, which is not enough to sate the hunger for cricket," The Daily Times quoted Farhat, as saying.

While Farhat is hoping to get his place back in national team, it would be difficult for him to cement his place in the squad as several young players are already in the queue waiting for a chance, and with players like Umer Akmal performing brilliantly, Farhat's dreams of making it to the playing eleven seem distant.
