Visas granted, but Pakistan players face another IPL hurdle
Advertisement
#1
Pakistan's players will need to go through the auction process to take part in the next IPL season, the league's commissioner Lalit Modi has said. His statement came shortly after the Pakistan board said it had been informed that visas for four players - Umar Gul, Sohail Tanvir, Misbah ul-Haq and Kamran Akmal - had been granted by the Indian government.

Modi said even those four players would need to go through the auction on January 19 because their franchises had replaced them. He said Bangalore Royal Challengers had replaced Misbah with Roelof van der Merwe, Kolkata Knight Riders had brought in Charl Langeveldt for Umar Gul, while Rajasthan Royals, who had Akmal and Tanvir in the first IPL, signed up Johan Botha.

Akmal, Gul, Misbah and Tanvir all applied for visas - the first three in Wellington, where they are involved in a Test series, and Tanvir in Islamabad - and Ijaz Butt, chairman PCB, confirmed that clearance had been granted. "Yes the visa clearance has been granted for four of them, three in New Zealand and one in Islamabad," Butt told Cricinfo.

However, they had failed to obtain the visas by the deadline of December 7. Modi said the deadline had already been extended twice for Pakistan and another delay would handicap franchise planning and team-building for the next season, due to begin in March.

The players now have to make themselves available for the auction after which they will go into the final pool only if a franchise expresses interest in bidding for a player.
