Karachi:

Paceman Mohammad Sami says he is keen to play for Pakistan again but he would not approach the Cricket Board unless he get his dues cleared by the unofficial Indian Cricket League.

Sami, who has been in good form for the Karachi team in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam trophy, said only after getting money from ICL the players could apply for an NOC and submit that to the PCB.

"The amount owed by the ICL to me personally is quite a big one so I can't leave them without first getting the dues cleared," Sami, who has played in 33 Tests and 83 one-day internationals before he joined the ICL in 2007, told PTI.

He said the ICL had been offering excuses everytime the players tried to contact them.

"It is getting a bit frustrating now because I and some other players have not received their last three instalments since last year," he complained.

Sami and other Pakistani player represented the Lahore Badshahs team in the ICL and they were a huge draw in the T20 rebel league before it stopped functioning last year after the Mumbai terror attacks.

The fast bowler said he has not given up hope of playing for Pakistan again.

"I am bowling well and I am in good form I know I can break into the national team once this issue with the ICL is resolved," he said.
