Haris Rauf

Pakistan Cricket Board terminates Haris Rauf’s central contract.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took action against fast bowler Haris Rauf for not joining the national team in Australia. They canceled his contract and banned him from playing in foreign leagues until June 30. 

The PCB said they looked into why Rauf didn’t join the team for the Australia tour in 2023-24. After talking to everyone involved, they decided to end his contract from December 1, 2023. They won’t let him play in any foreign league until June 30, 2024.

The PCB gave Rauf a chance to explain himself but wasn’t satisfied with his response. They believe that playing for Pakistan is a big deal and refusing to join the Test squad without a good reason breaks the contract.

Last December, Pakistan played three Test matches in Australia and lost them all. While Pakistan was struggling in Australia, Rauf chose to play for the Melbourne Stars team instead of joining the national team.
