No Pakistani players in IPL 4 auctions

Pakistani players
No Pakistani players will be included in the 4th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

According to sources, the IPL main council has decided to keep Pakistani players away from the auctions for IPL 4.

The decision has been taken keeping in mind the continuing problem into match-fixing allegations by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the sources added.

3 Pakistani players- Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were charged under Article 2 of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code on September 2, and have been temporarily suspended since then.

More recently, a secretly filmed video showed supposed bookmaker Mazhar Majeed boasting of relations with 4 other Pakistani cricketers- Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz and Imran Farhat.

It is noteworthy that no Pakistani players were included in to the last version of IPL as well.
