Pakistan has terminated pacer Haris Rauf’s central contract over his refusal to play the three-match Test series against Ausralia.

A statement by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) stated that the management took the decision against Haris Rauf, who was in Category B of the central contract, after a hearing and taking views of all stakeholders into consideration.

The pacer’s central contract was terminated from December 1, 2023 and no NOC (No objection certificate) to play any foreign league will be granted up to June 30, 2024.

PCB further added that Haris Rauf was provided an opportunity to justify himself before the management but they found his response unsatisfactory.

The cricket board added that it is the ultimate honour and priviledge for any Pakistani sportsperson to represent their country. He added that the cricketer violated of the agreement by refusing to be part of Pakistan’s Test squad in the absence of any medical report or justifiable reason.

It is pertinent to mention that Haris Rauf was under criticism for his dismal performance since ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. He set the unwanted record of being the most expensive bowler in a single edition of the 50-over world championship.
