Pakistan Premier League In The Process?




The Indian Premier League, having finished five extravagant seasons that just get all the more bigger and brighter and braver each time. They have been on the revenue lists for tycoons, celebrities and our own cricketers of course. Of course controversies have been thrown by the Yorkers with each year of its play but that hasn’t leveled down the fanatical enthusiasm for the tournament.

For starters, the Indian Premier League refused the intake of any Pakistani players. While there were rows of opposition on the matter in the starting few seasons, it was well clear that the rule would not change for the fifth time round as well. But now with the buzz of a Pakistan Premier League on the call outs, are the fellow border-mates being over the LOC friendly? It has well been established that Indian politics has a firm take on the matter of taking in any Pakistani players, with a few exceptional like Wasim Akram who was the bowling captain for the champions Kolkata Knight Riders. Even with soft and taciturn tactics, sweet talks, cooing and blue-green persuasion, the IPL was completely off limits to Pakistan players.

But that is an issue that seems to be in the process of undergoing a new plan as of now. With no clear and defined dates, particulars, or even players, there have been ripples of a Pakistan Premier League on the leaks and what makes it all the more conjuring is the ‘courtesy’ that the Indian side is promised to be given by them.

So far, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has declared that the Indian side will get a formal invitation for the event. He said that they will take all necessary steps to ensure that the notice reaches the proper channel and after that its all rests on the BCCI.

“My aim is to do whatever I can to put the relations between the two boards back on track because the fans want to see Pakistan and India in action”.

He did also say that politics and play should be kept on difference sides of wall- referring to the Gaddafi Stadium issue with the Punjabi Government. He aid that that may jeopardize the matches that may be played in the country in the future.

Perhaps the PCB needs to  make sure they have an event to start with before making an itinerary!
