While all players from across the cricketing world join the league, Indian cricketers should be made to feel ashamed and humiliated by watching the events on the other side of the border. It is as simple as that. Actions speak more than words. Pakistan is the best country in the world from all angles and they invented cricket. So it is their fundamental right to expect that others honor them. Or else, they will be made to feel ashamed. Welcome to Islamic Professional League (the acronym sounds exactly the same as that of the Indian counterpart just to rub the Indians in).

I welcome the stand taken by Indian franchisees , after all it is their decision not to allow Pakis to play in India . Indian govt keeping the vote bank politics in mind , have given Pakis visas , but the franchisees have taken this bold decision in clear defiance of Indian govt stand . Why must we keep any relationship with a nuisance ?

In last 60 years , Pakis have done everything to prove their supremacy over India, and India has beaten them , when they failed in direct confrontation, they started sending Paki terrorists to launch attack on India. When 10 Pakis were causing mayhem on the streets of Mumbai, none of these cricketers visited India nor they sent the condolence messages ? Where were they hiding? Paki cricketers are hypocrats ,they are not concerned with cricket, but the money IPL has to offer . Indian cricketers are quite competent , they are as professional , I am sure Indian cricketers will definitely put up a better show.

I remind the readers, when Pakis lost to India in a world cup match, the then Paki captain publicly made a statement stating he wants to reassure all muslims that they have lost after a great fight, and will put in all their efforts to regain the trophy ? Do Pakis represent all the muslims world over ?

Pakistani politicians feeling angry over a deal between a Pakistani player and IPL and change plans of visiting India is the mentality of small man. Neither Pakistani players nor IPL represent the country.

Yuvraj Singh has been sacked and Sangakara made the captain of Mohali Kings XI. Going by Pakistani cricketers, Yuvraj should react by saying Punjab is insulted. Pakistani players are not alone; some Australians are also out of IPL. I have not heard anyone saying Australia is insulted. Read this from Harsha Bhogle:

http://www.cricinfo.com/magazine/content  /story/445330.html

โ€œThe announcement came a day after the IPL franchises chose to ignore cricketers from Pakistan. I was looking forward to watching some fine young men in action and these cricketers have a right to feel done in. The key question, though, is: done in by whom? The franchises have a right to select the team they want, even if it is not the best possible, because they have to wear many hats. They cannot alienate fans, they don’t want to create a security issue, and they do not want any more uncertainty – part of the reason some fine Australian cricketers were turned down too.

I fear these players are being done in by the cage we are imprisoned in. We live in times of violence and hatred; there are many people who seek peace but equally some who seek to deny us what we thought was given. Sport cannot exist in isolation, cannot fly free from this cage of reality. We would love the two to be separated but that has never happened. In times of peace, or relative peace, we could produce the pathbreaking tours of 2004 and 2006. Now we are all pawns in the drama our subcontinent is enacting and the cricketers are merely more visible pawns. The conspiracy that Abdul Razzaq talks about is the reality of our times. The IPL will be poorer for the absence of some extraordinarily gifted cricketers, but this is just another victory for those that infect us with hatred. To believe there is a conspiracy against cricketers from Pakistan is wrong. It is the times we live in.โ€

If India was behind the attacks on Sri Lankan team then your Govt. is really stupid to have claimed that Talibans were behind the attacks. Besides what you write here speaks very highly of the mentality of the Pakistani people who love to fantasize about the conspiracy theories. You and whole of your country needs to grow up.

Which was apey back in some way for what hapened in Mumbai. Idots are like jackels wait for any opprtunity to defame Pakistan and trying to isolate the country but good luck simply because indians need it.

IPL without the best players particpating will be not worth watching. Go England U19 offcourse! lol

No bidders were stopped from bidding they have paid enormous money to but teams if they thought bidding for pak cricketers was a sensible decision they would have bid for them.
Well i guess there nothing wrong here the message is clear. Until stop you supporting terrorists by lateral ties will get worst….
We all know Pak Cricketers are awesome but perhaps it is the Pak Govt. we have to blame for not doing too little too late.

I welcome their stand. On the one side, Pakistanis are killing innocent Indians , and on the other side, they want a friendly relations with us ? They can not sail on 2 boats .

Pakistan is a terrorist state, and any relationship with Pakistanis will add to their terror infrastructure and provide legitimacy to Pakistani terror related activity.

Most importantly, the Pakistani outburst suffers from great inferiority complex. It is time Pakistanis should start introspection ,before they lay their claim for legitimacy before India.
