New Delhi, Dec 7: Bad news for Pakistani cricketers. They won't get to have a taste of IPL4. According to sources, the IPL governing council has decided to keep Pakistani players away from the auctions for IPL 4.
The decision has been taken keeping in mind the ongoing probe into match-fixing allegations by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the sources added.
Three 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 provisionally suspended since then.
More recently, a secretly filmed video showed alleged bookmaker Mazhar Majeed boasting of connections with four other Pakistani cricketers- Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz and Imran Farhat.
It is noteworthy that no Pakistani player was included in the last edition of IPL as well.
