The Indian Premier League management has taken a decision to probably start allowing Pakistani International cricketers in the next season of the Indian Premier League tournament.
The earlier seasons have already seen a few Pakistani cricketers be a part of a few teams.
The decision to fix the Indo-Pak bilateral cricketing ties is likely going to allow top Pakistani cricketers to once again be a part of the auctions in the money filled Indian Premier League.
This is a very bold and correct step on the part of the Indian Premier League.
“Now with government also giving a go-ahead, the general feeling among members is that Pakistani players should be allowed to be part of next Indian Premier League auction.” said a senior BCCI working committee member.
Pakistani bowler Sohail Tanveer was a part of the first season of the Indian Premier League. Sohail Tanveer who played for Rajasthan Royals was the winner of the ‘Purple Cap’ that season as well.
So, alongside Tanveer Shaid Afridi, Umar Gul, Mohammed Hafeez and Umar Akmal will be some of the players the teams would like to buy during the next auction but that is, if the BCCI agrees to open doors to the Pakistani players.
