Fast bowler Reece Topley is set to miss the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 after England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), reportedly, denied him a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to take part in the T20 tournament.

As per reports, Topley was battling a niggle, after which he was not given NOC as a part of a precautionary measure. Topley recently played all 12 matches for the Durban’s Super Giants, who finished as the runners-up in the SA20 2024 after losing to Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

The 29-year-old Topley picked up 13 wickets and was the joint second-highest wicket-taker for his team, along with Junior Dala.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), meanwhile, has reasons to worry after Topley missed out on playing in the PSL. Topley was retained by RCB ahead of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

With the IPL less than 2 months away, it remains to be seen if Topley gets fit to play in the tournament on Indian soil.

The PSL is set to start on Saturday, February 17 with the match between defending champions Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United. The Multan Sultans will play their first match against Karachi Kings on February 18 at the Multan Cricket Stadium.
