Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has requested the ICC to allow banned pacer Muhammad Aamir to start using facilities at the National Cricket Academy under the supervision of PCB coaches.

A senior official in the board told PTI that recent media reports that the ICC had or would allow Aamir to resume playing first class cricket were incorrect.

"We don't foresee that happening but the four man sub-committee formed by the ICC executive board to look into our request on Aamir's case will meet in October for the first time and only than something will be clear," the official said.
