Pakistan Speedster Shoaib Akhtar Eyes ICC-Approved Indian Premier League

Controversial Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has asked his cricket board to permit him to play in the newly-formed Twenty20 Indian Premier League.

“I have got a written offer and I am keen to take part,” Akhtar was quoted as saying to BBC.

The BCCI league has got the approval of ICC, which is quite different to the breakaway Indian Cricket League which had netted Brian Lara and Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Akhtar had earlier rejected an offer to play in the ICL, to preserve his hopes of an international return.

“The IPL is an official tournament and has good money,” he said.

“The advantage is whenever it is held it will not clash with my national commitments.”
