ICL's Pakistan recruits give up legal fight

Lahore, May 5 (UNI) Stating that some efforts were being made to normalise relations between the PCB and the rebel ICL players, former Test opener Imran Frahat today said they have given up their legal battle against the Pakistani authorities for banning them from domestic tournaments.

''Obviously we have to earn our livelihood from somewhere besides the ICL. And since we can't play in Pakistan we will remain busy until September playing league cricket,'' Imran Farhat said.

Farhat also added that the players had dropped the idea of filing a case against the board for banning them from domestic cricket due to their association with the ICL.

''We are confident a solution would be found to this ICL issue sooner or later and time does not remain the same all the time.

It will change for us as well. We didn't want to antagonise the establishment by going to court,''he said.
