PCB to invite Indian players for PPL

Karachi, Jun 7: Pakistan Cricket Board chief Zaka Ashraf has confirmed that he has plans of inviting Indian players for the Pakistan Premier League's maiden edition, which looks like a distant possibility.

"It's up to them whether they want to take part or not but the PCB will send out an invitation," Ashraf was quoted as saying.

"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 added.

Ashraf, who severely criticised Punjab government for bringing down a wall of Gaddafi Stadium which could harm the country's image and also prospects of hosting Pakistan Premier League matches at the venue.

"Politics should be kept separate from sports because itll hurt Pakistans image. We are trying to launch the revival of international cricket here and the Punjab government is doing such things. We cant even think of hosting an international team or a league match in Punjab in the current scenario," Ashraf said.

However, there is no reaction from the BCCI nor the Indian cricketers, regarding Pakistan's inaugural domestic league, PPL, while it would be nice to see how the league kicks off, in reality.
