LAHORE - Under pressure from Indian Cricket League (ICL) players to revoke their ban, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday said their fate is in the hands of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Ijaz Butt, a former Pakistan Test opener, told reporters in Islamabad that the PCB cannot lift the ban on the country's ICL rebels unless the ICC sanctions the unofficial league, owned by Indian media tycoon Subhash Chandra. Pakistan has banned 20 of its leading cricketers including openers Imran Farhat, Imran Nazir, pacers Mohammad Sami, Rana Naved-ul-Hassan and all-rounder Azhar Mahmood and Mohammad Yousuf for their association with ICL. The players have been demanding the right to play for the national team as well as in domestic first-class competitions but so far the PCB has been rigid in its approach towards them.
