    Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram believes the Indian Premier league (IPL) will lose its gloss after ignoring Pakistani cricketers, most of whom he stressed are counted among the best in the shorter version of the game.

    Speaking on the sidelines of a match featuring special children here at the PIA Academy Wednesday, the legendary pacer also took a swipe at the national cricket authorities over their failure to get IPL berths for the players.

    It is for the second successive year that the Pakistani cricketers have been sidelined for the cash—rich Twenty20 league.

    “There is little doubt about the popularity of Pakistani cricketers in Twenty20 cricket,” said Akram, regarded among the greatest fast bowlers of all time. “That is why I believe that the IPL will certainly miss exciting players like Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq.”

    Pakistan has featured in two finals of the three ICC World Twenty20 championships held so far and are considered to be a major force in the shortest format of the game.

    But IPL officials have shown little interest in Pakistani players.

    Pakistan’ cricket stars were not included in the auction of 416 players for next year’s edition of the IPL. The auction will take place in Bangalore Jan 8-9

    Although Pakistani cricketers took part in the inaugural IPL in 2008, they were forced out in 2009 due to security concerns in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks and were ignored for this season’s Twenty20 event.

    IPL organisers have declared that Pakistan’ cricket authorities did not inform them whether any of their players were interested in the featuring in the league.

    However, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has claimed that the IPL organisers never kept them in the loop.

    Akram lamented that a lack of communication between the PCB and IPL organisers has deprived Pakistan’s players of an excellent platform to exhibit their skills.

    “There was obviously a lack of communication but PCB should have initiated and pushed for the inclusion of its players in the event. Their failure shows a lack of vision among the board officials.”

    Speaking on a different issue, Akram threw his weight behind the idea of forming a players’ committee in Pakistan. The idea of a cricketers’ association has gained momentum after Aamer Bashir — a first—class stalwart — died of cancer earlier this week at the age of 38.

    Akram also had a word of advice for Mohammad Yousuf, the former Pakistan captain who was axed from the team because of fitness issues.

    Yousuf claims that he is fit and has rapped Pakistan’s selectors for overlooking him for the ongoing tour of New Zealand. Akram said that instead of criticising the selectors, Yousuf should prove his form and fitness on field.

    The reason BCCI gave was that they don't want any spot fixing controversy to haunt IPL, after the Lalit Modi controversy. In a way, I don't think I'll miss Pakistani players, not after what Sohail Tanveer spoke about.

    I second that!! These dumb/illiterate pakistani cricketers are fed by Indian (Read:Hindu:happy_2:) money and these thankless demented retarded pakistani cricketers talked about "Hindu Zehniyat", when their Hindu Over-Lords decided not to buy cheap pakistanis even at throw away prices (after being Bought in neelamies/auctions "sare bazar" many times over by Hindu Owners)!!:happy_7:

    Akram is obfuscating(a national trait). It is not IPL that will miss Pakistani cricketers, its the cash starved Pakistani cricketers who will miss IPL...

    The national trait of pakistan is to bite the hand that feeds them or jis thali mein khaya, usi mein ched kiya. This trait is also visible in their sporting culture.

    Take cricket, for example.

    1) pakistan was being bombarded by the zealous jihadis who were created to bleed India by their beloved ISI. All the cricket bodies around the world refused to come to the beggars' country. Obviously! Who would want to get killed? So, the desolate PCB begged the BCCI to tour Pakistan to prove that Pakistan is safe. Inspite of high threat levels to the Indian players, BCCI agreed to help its paki counterpart. But just before the tour could commence, terrorists from the beggaristan attacked India on 26/11. Sensing the nation's mood, BCCI called off the tour. PCB, instead of realising that BCCI's decision was correct, threw a tantrum. PCB should have been grateful that BCCI even considered a tour, but instead they just showed their national trait.

    2) Next, to teach a lesson to BCCI; PCB organised a tour Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan board was headed by Ranatunga who, I believe, was also against the hegemony of BCCI. He perhaps envisaged to fightback BCCI's monarchy by allying with PCB. So, he agreed fro Sri Lankan tour of beggarland. The beggars were overjoyed. They thanked Sri Lankans. They declared that Sri Lankan were their best friends. The tour started. BUT...the terror kheeda of the pakistanis was itching again. The jihadis, supposedly non-state actors, attacked the convoy of Sri Lankan cricketers who were going to the stadium. A cricketer even took a bullet. Before Sri Lankans visited, they were promised 'presidential security' by the beggars. But, alas, the presidential security was not enough to protect the lankans. Lankans were shaken and they immediately returned to their country. Paks being paks blamed India for the terror attack. World laughed, lankans did not approve. Then the paks blamed LTTE, world laughed hysterically, and the lankans removed Ranatunga for sending them into the beggarland. Paks kept staunchly defending themselves. Some of them even said that Lankans were ungrateful. This spectcular show of pakiness ensured that no cricketing nation visited pakistan till date.

    3) The beggar cricketers remained isolated. ECB took pity on the poor thugs and organised a home match for Pakistan. Pakistan's home match would now be played in England. The tour commenced, again halfway through the tour, the paks were exposed. A tabloid exposed the beggar cricketers fixing matches. ECB was embarrassed, but this was only the start. PCB chief later accused england players of fixing. England players were fuming. Thus, pakistan again had bitten the hand that fed them...

    2. we all know they are inspired by - 18 till i die ....... their age on their resume never cross 16 till they make it to international team.

    3. the talent the current breed posses. today they got all out for some 70 runs against auckland.

    4. they are good heart people - who knows who killed Bob woolmer.

    5. they take it in stride- tanvir statement about hindus after he was given so much love by rajusthani people ( most of them hindu )

    6. they snobby-ness they possess - we dont need IPL and boycott issue during second ipl.

    7. the great - doping saga - and akhtar is still playing afterfound taking all those injections ....even though he beat his partner in crime asif with a bat.

    8. their national hero javed mindad is relative to criminal - dawood.

    9. their performance in IPL 1 WHICH - was truly unprofessional.

    10. pffftt.. leave it they are plain o pakistani cricketer.

    Lol, they have been left out again?
    Remember the commotion in the media last time when the Pakistanis are left out. Let's brace for something similar from the media this time too.

    Its good they are not here.. two reasons. one is security and second and most important one is that they cannot be trusted..i am sure they would have proved the proverbial dogs tail and fixed matches here as well and tainted IPL even more after last years off field happenings. I dont think India or IPL will miss the pakistanis. we just dont know how honest they are with their work.

    I dont know if IPL will miss Pakistani players or not but they will miss us for sure. Who else will give so much of money without being involved in any match fixing ?

    lol, Akram...

    its such foolishness of akram to think that we will miss the great unfaithful players of pakistan. Infact it will the pakistani players who will miss the IPL. even their grandfathers might not have seen that kind of money offered by IPL.

    FORMER PAKISTAN Captain, Javed Miandad strongly feels that there is a serious possibility of matches being fixed in the cash rich Indian Premier League. The swashbuckling batsman further added that he considers the IPL Twenty20 as a joke.

    Maindad said that the IPL, which is being played in South Africa has provided some suprising results where a number of games have been lost from winning positions. He feels that something fishy is going on in the IPL where strange things are taking place, reported a leading newspaper.

    Maindad said, "I dont consider the IPL as cricket, it is a joke." He added that it is strange that players who aren't regular bowlers are picking up hat-tricks in matches and teams, which are all set to win are gifting away the matches from winning positions. He feels that ICC should step in and check possible corruption in the mega event.

    He said that if at all such Twenty20 cricket leagues, involving large chunks of money, are played, they should be held under the direct supervision of the ICC or else there would always be a fear of corruption taking place. He wasn't happy as the ICC's anti corruption unit was not not present in the IPL despite the big money at stake along with a number of foreign players invovled in the tournament.

    Earlier ICC had offered to have the anti corrupton unit to supervise this year's IPL but the IPL organisers had rejected the offer and have arranged their own security and anti corruption officers. The ICC has asked for USD 1.2 million from the Indian board to cover the costs of their ACU activities in the IPL.

    Maindad, also a former coach of the Pakistan team said that the ICC must stop the IPL because it was damaging the fabric of the sport and forcing the players to change their loyalties, giving an example of Chris Gayle who reached England for the test match just two days before the match, which the West Indies lost badly and was an insult to test cricket. Last but not the least, he said that now if the IPL does not involve and step in the IPL then the traditional forms of cricket would be damaged to a great extent.

    Getting harsh on the Indian board he said that the IPL has forced the players to put the money above the country and only the Indian board and its players are gaining from it whereas it has no financial benefits for the other boards.

    I would not be surprised if the matches are fixed in the IPL.

    Unless it becomes nail biting, how will you attract the crowd or have people crowding around the TV that rakes in payoffs for the ads revenue!

    That is how one markets and makes cash!

    Gentlemen,

    Please do not use words like beggaristan.

    While it is true that Pakistan requires aid from foreign nations to stay afloat and so requests for such aid, it however beggars good syntax to use the said word used.

    beggar [ˈbɛgə]
    n
    1. a person who begs, esp one who lives by begging
    2. a person who has no money or resources; pauper
    3. Ironic or jocular chiefly Brit fellow lucky beggar!
    vb (tr)
    1. to be beyond the resources of (esp in the phrase to beggar description)
    2. to impoverish; reduce to begging
    beggarhood , beggardom n
