Afghanistan board takes strict action against Mujeeb, Naveen, Farooqi; IPL 2024 participation in doubt

Srinagar: Putting their IPL 2024 participation in doubt Afghanistan Cricket Board is taking strict action against Mujeeb ur Rehman, Naveen Ul Haq and Fazalhaq Farooqi as the trio intended to skip National duties.

Afghanistan Cricket Board has decided to immediately cancel their NOCs (No Objection Certificate) following the cricketers’ attempt to opt out of the central contracts and prioritise franchise leagues across the globe.

“The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has decided to delay the 2024 annual central contracts for national players, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazal Haq Farooqi, and Naveen Ul Haq Mureed. Additionally, the Board has opted not to grant them No Objection Certificates (NOCs) for the next two years following their intention to be released from their annual central contracts,” the ACB said in a release.

Mujeeb was picked up by the Kolkata Knight Riders for his base price of ₹2 crore while pacers Naveen and Farooqi were retained by their respective franchises – Lucknow Super Giants and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Mujeeb is currently with the Melbourne Renegades squad in the Big Bash League in Australia. It would be interesting to see if he is asked to return home as the ACB committee has immediate suspension of all NOCs given to the three cricketers.
