Legendary Pakistani Cricketer Inzamam-Ul Haq aka Inzy has told PCB (Pakistan cricket Board) to take some lessons from Srilanka Cricket on ICL (Indian Cricket League) issue.
It is interesting that Srilanka Cricket board has lifted the ban from the rebel Cricketer who has joined Zee promoted Unofficial T20 cricket league as called by BCCI.
This is a major setback to BCCI and ICC as this two monopolistic bodies are trying to suppress the ICL.
BCCI fears that if this ICL has been recognized then they will loose their monopoly over the game and they will no longer rule the game.
But the good news is that slowly the cricket boards of different countries are accepting ICL and recognizing it and they are not going the ICC or BCCI way to suppress the competition in the market. They all think that this is a great initiative by Zee to promote the game and will benefit it game in both the short and long term.
Inzy told PCB that its time for Pakistan Cricket Board to decide what they want to do, they should not do those things which are decided by BCCI or ICC. He further advocated that cricket is the livelihood for all the players and joining ICL is not a crime.
