The rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) has zeroed in on seven Pakistani players, including former spinners Mushtaq Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq, for its next edition.
Sources said apart from these two, the ICL has also sounded off Naved Latif, Hasan Reza, Mohammad Hafeez, Humayun Farhat and Imran Nazir.
Nazir and Hafeez have played recently for Pakistan, while Hasan and Latif have been consistent performers on the domestic circuit without getting a proper chance to represent Pakistan.
Both Mushtaq and Saqlain have not played for Pakistan since 2003/2004 and are currently busy with the county championship in England.
Saqlain will also qualify as a British national to play for England in April.
Sources said the players were contacted by former Pakistan captain Moin Khan who is the ICL representative here and also coaches one of the ICL teams.
