Multan Sultans’ Star Player Faces Lengthy Emirates Cricket Board Ban

The Emirates Cricket Board has slapped a five-year ban on Pakistan’s star batter, Usman Khan, for “breaching the obligations.” He owned the board and has been banned from participating in tournaments like the IL T20 and Abu Dhabi T10.

The board has accused Usman of being misleading with his decision to play for the Emirates Cricket Board. The board went through a detailed investigation of the matter regarding Usman Khan, who was not willing to make himself eligible to play for the UAE by not fulfilling the criteria.

The ECB released an official statement regarding the matter, which read, “After a detailed investigation, Usman was found to have misrepresented to the ECB  his decision to play for the UAE team and has used the opportunities and development provided by the ECB to him to seek out other prospects, and it was evident that he was no longer wanting to play for the ECB nor complete the eligibility criteria that he was under an obligation to do.” 

The statement further read, “Usman participated in the ECB sanctioned International League T20 Season 2 earlier this year in the UAE category as a local player. The ECB also entered into an ECB employment contract with Usman for a period of one year. This was done to give him security and allow him to fulfill his eligibility criteria that would allow him to represent the UAE in international cricket.”.

Usman has been recently in great form with the bat.

The batter was the second-highest run-getter in PSL behind Babar Azam. The batter scored 430 runs in this season of the PSL.
