PCB denies Mohammad Haris’ NOC, refuse to pay for his flight. Mohammad Haris took the risk of traveling to Bangladesh without a NOC.
Pakistan batsman Mohammad Haris recently suffered an uncomfortable scenario when he was compelled to return to Pakistan from Dhaka airport after the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) refused to provide him a NOC (No Objection Certificate) to play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2024.
The board denied him the opportunity to represent Chattogram Challengers in the BPL since he has already competed in two franchised league events since July 2023 and cannot participate in another, according to board policy.
It is worth mentioning that Haris took the risk of flying to Bangladesh without the NOC, which was later denied, and that the board refused to pay for his return airfare to Pakistan from Bangladesh. As a result, the BPL franchise Chattogram Challengers paid for his return flight to Pakistan as a professional courtesy.
Chattogram Challengers look to improve in upcoming games
Chattogram Challengers have played two games in the BPL 2024 so far, winning one and losing the other. Sitting in fourth place with two points from two games, the team will strive for additional wins in their remaining games in order to move up the points table.
The team won their first game of the tournament against Sylhet Strikers, but lost to Khulna Tigers. In the tournament’s fourth game, both teams faced off, with the Challengers batting first after losing the toss. The side’s top-order failed to make an impression in the game. Shohidul Islam scoring the most runs with 40 in the first innings as Challengers posted 121 runs.
