In a move signalling his commitment to Pakistan cricket, Usman Khan has sent a notice to terminate his central contract with the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB).

According to reliable sources, Usman seeks to establish his future in Pakistan cricket and has sought legal consultation from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in this regard.

Usman’s decision comes on the heels of his impressive performance in the recent Pakistan Super League (PSL 9), where he shone for Multan Sultans with two centuries and a total of 430 runs.

His stellar showing in the PSL has earned him a spot in the PCB’s fitness camp at Kakul, further solidifying his place in the national reckoning.

Although Usman began his cricketing journey in Pakistan, he sought better opportunities in the UAE, where he was awarded a central contract by the ECB.


Despite holding a Pakistani passport, he was designated as a local player in the UAE leagues, including the ILT20 League, where he represented Gulf Giants.

Notably, Usman’s participation in the PSL as a foreign player required him to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the ECB. While initially planned to return to Dubai after the PSL final, Usman decided otherwise and remained in Pakistan.

Throughout this transition, Usman maintained constant communication with the PCB, with an influential figure from Multan Sultans playing a pivotal role in facilitating his return to Pakistan cricket.

Now, with his sights set on representing Pakistan, Usman has taken the bold step of terminating his contract with the ECB, despite potential consequences on his future participation in UAE tournaments.

Usman’s decision underscores his determination to don the green jersey, with assurances that he will not only be part of the upcoming series against New Zealand but also be considered for the World Cup squad.
