Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has refused to provide any compensation to national Twenty20 captain Muhammad Hafeez, who had to miss the Big Bash tournament in Australia because of the national team's Test commitments.

A reliable source in the Pakistan Cricket Board told PTI that unlike previous instances when some senior players were compensated for skipping or cancelling contracts in foreign leagues, this time the board has adopted a different stance.

"The acting Chairman, Najam Sethi recently conveyed it very clearly to Hafeez that the board was not in a position to compensate him for missing the Big Bash for which he was offered a contract," the source said. (Also read: PCB to send official for security inspection in Bangladesh)

He said Hafeez pulled out of the Big Bash event because it clashed with the test series with Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates this month.
