The Pakistan Cricket Board has abruptly revoked No-Objection Certificates given to 13 players now in England and the West Indies and has asked them to return home to fulfill national and domestic commitments.

Pakistanis cricketers in CPL including Kamran Akmal, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Mohammad Sami, Hasan Ali, and Sohail Tanvir have been told to return in order to represent the local franchises. "We hope to bring a World XI for a three-match Twenty20 series and the next two to three months will bring more good news".

As of now, Pakistan's domestic National T20 tournament end on September 10 with the final in Faisalabad, after which they are supposed to host Sri Lanka in the UAE from September 25; thus, the window available for the World XI visit sits between September 10 and 17. The matches are expected to be held in Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

"We will discuss this matter in the ACC meeting in Colombo on Saturday and we think that the event can be held at any other secure venue outside India and Pakistan", Najam Sethi, has stated, quoted AFP.

The decision was taken owing to the late finalisation and rescheduling of the ICC World- XI series, which will be played in mid-September. "The series has been brought forward to mid September instead of last week of September because the Punjab Government wants it to be held before the NA120 election on September 17".

The players have been asked to report to Head Coach Micky Arthur at the National Cricket Academy on August 22 for fitness and medical screening followed by participation in the national T20 tournament and preparatory camp under the supervision of Pakistan team management.
