Cool Cool National T20 Cup 2017 Schedule Teams Squad Players List

All the matches will take place at the Multan Cricket Stadium and the Iqbal Stadium. It is the fourteenth season of the National Twenty20 Cup in  Pakistan .The defending champions,  Karachi  Blues, were not invited by the  Pakistan Cricket Board  ( PCB) to compete in this years competition. Ahead of the tournament, the PCB recalled thirteen players who were playing in domestic competitions in England and in the 2017 Caribbean Premier League(CPL).[2]  Details However, shortly afterwards the PCB allowed players to return the CPL and English domestic fixtures if they wished.

Introduction of thePakistan Super League

The introduction of the Pakistan Super League implies the months of February and March are now totally booked and with the main Pakistani players wanting to participate in T20 leagues around the world, it is becoming even tougher for the board.

Pakistan Cricket Board PCB

However, the  Pakistan Cricket Board  (PCB) has made it mandatory for their contracted players to feature in the National T20 In order to receive NOCs to play in the South African Global League T20 and the Bangladesh Premier League which takes place in November-December.

National T20 Cup

Originally, the National T20 Cup was scheduled to be played during the months of August and September. However, the PCB planned the Independence Cup competition between hosts  Pakistan  and the World XI at Lahore in a bid to bring international cricket back to Pakistan and that prevented them from hosting the National T20 Cup during those days.

Defending Champions Karachi Blues

Interestingly, defending champions Karachi Blues might not feature in this year’s National T20 Cup after the PCB decided not to invite them to play in the tournament. There was no place for Sialkot either which looked like a strange call from the PCB.
