Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan on Tuesday said they did not want to drag PCB to the court for banning ICL aligned players from playing in and for the nation and rather they were looking for an amicable solution to the issue.

Moin, who is one of the main Pakistani players aligned with the unofficial Twenty20 League, also said that he has also advised players against going to court challenging the ban imposed on them by the PCB.

"I also told the PCB that it would not look good if a former captain took them to court. I have also restrained the other players from seeking legal help. We want an amicable resolution of the issue with the Board," he said.

"In England already the authorities and counties have changed their stance on the ICL after a few players took them to court.

"There is no way this ban on playing domestic cricket is justified because if a player is available for his country and in his spare time is playing in a private league he is only earning his livelihood and he can't be stopped from doing this," he argued.

Moin said he remained confident that very soon the ICL would be given official status by the ICC.

"It will happen sooner or later or else players have no option but to seek legal help."

On suggestions that Pakistani players should boycott the IPL or ICL events to protest allegations that Pakistan territory was used for Mumbai terror strikes, Moin said, "This is something that varies from player to player. But I do not know what can be achieved by such action.

"Because all of us who have gone and played in India have been given lot of respect and love," he said.
