The Asian Cricket Council today chose to shift the U-19 Asia Cup tournament from Bengaluru to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) refused to send its team to India.
The same notices went out to Mohammad Amir, who was to stay with Essex until September, Sarfraz Ahmed, who was to play five games for Yorkshire in the Natwest T20 Blast, and Fakhar Zaman, who was set to join Somerset until the end of the season.
The games against the World XI were originally supposed to be held in the last week of September, but should the matches be given clearance by the Pakistan government, it will take place between September 10 and 16.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ordered centrally contracted and other players busy in cricketing assignments overseas to return to the country to warm up for the ICC World XI series in September.
Miandad also pitched ideas to improve the state of cricket in the country, suggesting that the board should hire former cricketers as presidents of various cricket bodies in Pakistan. "So they are being recalled owing to the changes in the schedule brought about due to the change in the original plan of the World XI's tour of Pakistan".
The tournament will feature eight teams, with four - Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka - qualifying automatically.
Pakistan are scheduled to play two tests, three one-dayers and two Twenty20 internationals against Sri Lanka in September-October, with the series likely to be held in the UAE.
Players either in Caribbean Premier League (CPL) or English country have been recalled to fulfill their domestic commitments.
A team of worldwide cricket stars is scheduled to visit Pakistan for three T20 matches in September.
