News On The ICL

I was watching this program on Business Plus with former PCB head Arif Abbasi and some other random dude as the guests. Sallu, the chief selector, was on the phone in the middle of the show and seemed to intimate that the PCB will back down from its firm stance and allow players to play for Pakistan even if they played in the ICL. He specifically cited the case of Yousuf, and implied that it was his particular case that was causing the PCB to soften its view on the entire affair. For the record, the exact exchange was something like this:

Host: So are you confident that it will be possible for these players to play for Pakistan again?
Sallu: Yes, inshallah.

This is big news. I'm sure we'll hear more tomorrow.
