An arbitral tribunal headed by Justice BP Saraf banned Pakistan's Mohammad Yousuf from playing for the Indian Premier League after he backed out of his contract with the rebel Indian Cricket League on Saturday.

Yousuf had pulled out of the Indian Cricket League in-order to play for Pakistan. However, the 33-year-old shocked the ICL by signing with the ICC backed BCCI's Indian Premier League.

His explanation for the withdrawal was that he misunderstood the ICL contract and did not realize he would have to give the ICL priority over international matches.

The rebel league proceeded to take the matter to court demanding that Yousuf honoured his contract with them.

In reply the ace Pakistani batsman filed a suit of his own against the ICL management claiming damages worth Rs 215 million.
