Pakistan have extended their deadline for players to accept central contracts after four senior players failed to sign on time.
Mohammad Yousuf, Abdul Razzaq, Younis Khan and Danish Kaneria have been given a further five days to agree to the new binding contracts by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman Ehsan Malik said: "The players were supposed to sign the contracts by August 10 but we have extended the deadline to the 15th because four of them have only received their copies now."
Yousuf, Razzaq and Kaneria were left out of the squad for next month's inaugural Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa.
But Razzaq, who has appeared in 231 one-day internationals and 46 Tests for Pakistan, said he had received an offer to play in the breakaway Indian Twenty20 league (ICL).
But the Pakistan board has said that any players who played in the ICL would not be considered for future selection.
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq confirmed that he had also been approached by the ICL.
Inzamam, who was not given a new central contract by the PCB, said he had been offered around $50,000 a month to play in India.
He said: "It is a good offer and I am keen about it. But at the same time I want a situation where I can come back and play for Pakistan in Test matches."
