    Mo Yo goes ICL

    http://www.thenews.com.pk/updates.asp?id=59150

    Pakistan cricket is in shambles would be an understatement.

    The ICL contract must have been ironclad.

    Not very surprised by this tbh, he had already signed an ICL contract a while back due to which he wasn't even able to participate in the IPL, and given the situation PCB and Pakistan cricket are in right now in, he obviously had too ponder with the other options he had, and i guess ICL was probably the only option left for him.

    Yeah think this was fairly inevitable. With the Pakistan situation being what it is, you can hardly blame him. It's difficult to be deserting something when there's nothing there to desert!!!

    That's a biggie. :\

    What're the odds of this ICL ban thing getting lifted within the playing careers of these cricketers... ?

    I miss Shane Bond.

    I reckon all contracts of such nature have a get-out clause involving a financial penalty of some sort. Whether the PCB is justified in not buying Mohammad Yousuf's way out of the ICL given their financial situation now is debatable.

    Right now, roughly zero, but things can change very quickly with these private league thingies.

    Recently there was a statement by the new PCB chairman where he said that ICL players could have their bans lifted so lets see how this unfolds.

    PCB is in shambles. How old is he? 33?

    Yeah he is around that age group, but age not withstanding he is arguably still Pakistan' best batsman by some distance, so obviously its a huge blow for an already weak Pakistan side, tbh if the situation in Pakistan doesn't improve quickly it would only be a matter of time before even more players take this ICL route.

    First SLC, now the PCB. If these two boards didn't completely depend on the BCCI at the current time, it'd be great to see a potential split in the "Asian bloc".

    Can fully understand a Pakistani player taking the money and running considering the current climate of cricket in their country. Best career option for him right now.
