Pakistan players all set to be a part of IPL VI auctions
After the Working Committee cleared the three ODI and two T20 series against Pakistan, there has been a growing feeling among the BCCI members that Pakistan players should now be allowed to play in the IPL.
A proposal in this regard may be tabled when the working committee meets next.
"It`s bad luck that Champions League T20 has been shifted to South Africa or else Sialkot Stallions would have played here before the national team. Now with government also giving go-ahead, the general feeling among members is that Pakistan players should be allowed to be part of next IPL auctions," a senior BCCI working committee member preferring anonymitysaid.
"If you follow the trend, a positive decision will certainly be on cards when the working committee meets next time. It wasn`t for any reason that PCB president Zaka Ashraf had been invited to watch the IPL final," the official added.
The Pakistan players were a part of IPL-I with Sohail Tanveer, playing for Rajasthan Royals, getting the `Purple Cap`.
Shaid Afridi, Umar Gul, Mohammed Hafeez and Umar Akmal will be some of the sought after players if the BCCI agrees to open doors for Pakistan players.
