Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Haris found himself compelled to return to Pakistan from Dhaka Airport after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) declined to issue a No Objection Certificate (NOC), a mandatory requirement for participation in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2024.

Slated to play for Chattogram Challengers in the BPL, Haris was denied the NOC by the PCB.

Haris was also told that the board would not cover the expenses of his return flight to Pakistan. In response, Haris’s BPL team, Chattogram Challengers, stepped in to arrange and cover the cost of his return ticket.

Haris, 22, took to Instagram to share his situation with a zipper-mouth emoji, indicating his return home.

Earlier, Haris had approached the Pakistan Cricket Board, seeking a NOC for his participation in the BPL. He had made arrangements to fly to Bangladesh on January 17th, with assurances from the PCB that the NOC would be provided on January 18th. However, upon his arrival in Bangladesh, the PCB reversed its decision causing mayhem.
