Sussex Working With ECB And PCB Over Mushtaq

Further to the ECB Press Release issued on Wednesday 27 February and media reports concerning Mushtaq Ahmed’s involvement with the Indian Cricket League, Sussex County Cricket Club today confirmed that they are working with the ECB and the PCB in order to clarify the situation.

Gus Mackay, Chief Executive, confirmed that Sussex had received a letter from the PCB on Thursday 7 February 2008 confirming they had no objection to Mushtaq Ahmed playing cricket for Sussex in the forthcoming English season. Recent reports suggest that the NOC was issued prior to Mushtaq signing for the ICL. The PCB has indicated that their decision to issue an NOC could be affected should a player participate in an unauthorised event.
