Having played a crucial role in recruiting players for the Indian Cricket League, former Pakistan captain Moin Khan is miffed at Mohammad Yousuf and Abdul Razzaq's readiness to dump ICL in order to revive their international career.Yousuf and Razzaq have informed the Pakistan Cricket Board that they are willing to cancel their ICL contracts if reconsidered for national selection.
Moin told Geo Super Sports channel that he didn't like the way Yousuf and Razzaq had offered to switch loyalty."It is true that ICL is facing problems and they couldn't organise their tournament in March-April. But you go through good and bad times and one expects people to behave more maturely when tested," he said.Moin said the ICL had never stopped any player from representing his national team and it were actually the national boards that had imposed bans on the ICL players.
"I was just a bit surprised at the way Yousuf and Razzaq clamoured to offer themselves again for Pakistan and cancel their contracts with the ICL," Moin said."I would have expected them to be a bit more patient and show some loyalty because the ICL has been good for the players when even their national boards were not considering them for selection," the former wicketkeeper-batsman said.Moin said he would be happy to see some of the ICL players return to the Pakistan fold but they should do it in a dignified manner.
