Last Sunday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recalled a few Pakistani cricketers to leave from the existing Big Bash League (BBL) to prepare for the forthcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) season. These individuals were left-handed batter Fakhar Zaman, leg-spin all-rounder Shadab Khan, and pacers Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hasnain. The highly anticipated event begins on January 27.

Zaman had come to the competition to fill in for injured England batter Tom Abell, who was playing for the Brisbane Heat. Zaman was only allowed to play one game for the team due to Covid-19 restrictions and travel complications in Australia's states.

The Heat stated that regrettably, the Pakistan Cricket Board acknowledged that it has revoked Fakhar's permit to play their remaining matches in the BBL, as well as the permission of all Pakistan players currently participating in the BBL, and summoned him to return immediately to prepare for the PSL.

They commented that the team is saddened that Zaman won't be able to continue, and he's unhappy that he won't be able to join them again. Zaman requested us to express gratitude to the supporters for their support and to wish the squad luck in the final three games. The Heat applauds him for making the commitment to come to Australia on such short notice, and they wish him continued success in cricket.

Shadab did not play in the Sydney Sixers' victory over Sydney Thunder on Saturday. On the other hand, Hasnain featured for the defeated team in the same game. Meanwhile, Rauf stated on Saturday on his social media account that he was quitting Melbourne Stars with two games remaining. He said that he had an awesome experience in Australia and wish his team all the best.

Heat, on the other hand, gained a boost when Michael Neser and Mitchell Swepson, who were released early from the Ashes squad, joined the team ahead of their game against the Stars. Mitchell Marsh and Josh Inglis were also cut from the Test squad and will play for the Perth Scorchers against the Heat on Monday.
