Ban on ICL

The ban on Pakistan players has been removed and they are now free to play in the ICL matches. We all know that ICL is a cricket league in which nine city teams are playing against each other and Pakistan(lahore badshas) are one among them. Pakistan Cricket board banned the players for paying in ICL. But the Star player Mohammad Yousuf and Former Pakistan Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq challenged the ban and they played in ICL last year. So atlast Pakistan cricket board removed the ban and left them free for playing in Indian cricket league.
