Pakistan opening batsman Sami Aslam, aged 24 has decided to leave Pakistan Cricket and play international cricket for some other nation after being ditched from 35 men squad touring NZ.

Will be interesting to see which team he selects for playing international cricket, has been top performer in domestic cricket.Past few years few Pakistani domestic players were seen playing domestic cricket in Zimbabwe, Raza being the top who selected Zimbabwe for international cricket.

He is targeting to play for the USA apparently.

Good to see Logan Cup starting but I'm getting frustrated at the lack of cricket during COVID, and the empty stadiums.

Also, it's difficult to see nations outside of top 8 get enough cricket until situation returns to normalcy which is even more frustrating, because mostly it will be same big teams playing each other. Already a lot of test series in WTC have been cancelled... Same can happen to ODI Super league if games don't start soon.

I hope we don't find a situation where pakis and Bangladeshis have found a loophole to pimp themselves out to the cricketing world permanently. The loopholes are tough as I imagine but they have ruined the European cricket scene by just taking over all small development efforts to get locals involved. Annoys me.

Its mostly a Pakistani (and Indian) thing. Teams like Denmark or Belgium end up being 90% Asian. I never understood why Bangladeshis didn't do it also. I suspect Bangladeshi expats aren't good enough even to crack a team like Belgium or Slovenia.

Just like Zimbos & Proteas pimping in UK. On previous occassion international players use to look for loopholes now even Under 19 kids have crowded their clubs & 2nd XI.

Ireland & Australia are being added to it as their new destination.

Looks like we have 4 test matches coming up at the beginning of next year and some A team cricket. While I don’t like Hami appointing Chamu, having somebody who understands what a player needs to develop is important.

The scene im loosely involved in made genuine progress in getting locals interested around ten years ago. Since then it's all been sun continental students.
I was talking to the ex development officer who quit because he was getting harassed by them because they wanted to be part of every 'development' touring squad and everytime they made a compromise the captain would just exclude the locals and they quit. Was disgraceful.
We also welcome new players into our team and three times apparently in the last decade the Indians of Pakistani guys broke away and made breakaway teams behind our back always on ethnic lines.
Some of its sort of ok because it grows the local comp but it is all underhanded.
So now we have a bunch of Pakistani teams, a Bangladeshi, a few Indians and a British/Aussie/local mishmash.

4 tests vs Afghanistan and Pakistan. That is fantastic news. Wish there was a Bangladesh series thrown in there as well.
