    The head of Pakistan's cricket board on Thursday offered foreign players insurance worth $2 million and up to $100,000 tax free income in a bid to lure them to join the troubled country's new Twenty20 league. The world professional cricketers' union has warned players against taking part


    in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), due to start in March, because of the "unmanageable" security risk. Pakistan is struggling with a homegrown Islamist insurgency and suffers bombings and shootings on an almost daily basis.

    No international cricket has been played in the country since militants attacked the Sri Lankan team bus during a Test match in Lahore in 2009.

    Zaka Ashraf, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), said they were ready to offer insurance to any player wishing to tour the country.

    "It's extra security and optional for the players if they want to take it for the satisfaction of their families," Ashraf told AFP.

    "It will be worth two million dollars and above all tax free income for all."

    Ashraf said he was determined to revive home internationals, but the PCB faces a tough challenge. Twice in the past 12 months Bangladesh have agreed to a tour only to dash Pakistani hopes by changing their minds due to security fears.

    Players stand to earn between $25,000 and $100,000 for taking part in the two-week tournament under the wage structure the PCB announced on Wednesday.

    The PCB has confirmed the inclusion of former ICC match referee Mike Procter and former elite panel umpires Russell Tiffin and Rudi Koertzen for the upcoming Pakistan Super League, a Twenty20 tournament starting on March 25.

    "Apart from Aleem Dar and Asad Rauf [who are from Pakistan], three other esteemed international match officials have confirmed their participation," the PCB said in a statement. "In addition, preparation is proceeding apace in all other aspects and the team is well on track with its plans for broadcasters and sponsorship."

    Although the PCB hasn't named the foreign players to take part in the event, the addition of the three match officials is a notable scoop, after FICA's advice to players not to travel to Pakistan because of security concerns.

    Procter, who stood down as an ICC match referee in 2008 to become Cricket South Africa's convener of selectors, last visited Pakistan in June that year to officiate the Asia Cup matches.

    "I am delighted to announce that I have agreed to be one of the Match Referees in the upcoming Pakistan Super League," Procter was quoted as saying by PCB. "I was approached by the PSL management team and after due consideration, I am looking forward to being a part of this exciting event in Pakistan.

    "It is unfortunate that Pakistan and its fans do not currently enjoy their beloved international cricket stars at home and this cannot remain so. I am willing to get involved, and to help change perceptions about cricket being played in Pakistan."

    Tiffin, a Zimbabwean umpire, was part of ICC's elite panel of umpires from 1995, and his last assignment in the country was to officiate Bangladesh's tour of Pakistan in 2003. "I have been to Pakistan before on cricketing assignments and I am keen to take part in the PSL," Tiffin said. "With the talent we know that exists in Pakistan, I am sure this competition will be quite a spectacle and I cannot wait to be a part of it.

    "I know about the challenges that Pakistan cricket faces and I know from my own experiences at home how perceptions can cloud the realities. I am confident that the PCB can deliver a safe and secure event."

    Tiffin last officiated an international match in 2009, and since then has been engaged with ICC tournaments featuring associate teams.

    The other umpire Koertzen stood in 209 ODIs, a record, and in 108 Tests before retiring in 2010. On accepting the offer, he said: "We all know that Pakistan is going through a trying phase and we in the cricket family need to do what we can to help. It remains a very vibrant cricketing nation that always impresses us with its resilience. I have never had any problem umpiring in Pakistan, and I am actually looking forward to go over and catch up with old friends."

    The govt in Pakistan can not run one day without permission of Allaha, Mullaha and Army ( all terrorists)....

    So you will have to take permission of terrorist to do any thing in Pakistan.... I do not think this will be successfull. Moreover in India they pay more than 30 crores to one player. You will have to sell your nuclear bombs to pay that kind of money.

    RSS in India is a cultural organisation.

    Is it a joke? or, calculation gone wrong?

    $100,000 = 55,00,000 INR = Among the lowest bids in IPL

    Heck, even the likes of Vinay Kumar got 10 times this amount. In fact your own Azhar Mahmood pocketed $200,000.

    Pakistan passes Swat Sharia deal

    Politicians hope the deal will end a two-year insurgency

    Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari has signed a controversial bill introducing Islamic Sharia law to the Swat region, say reports.

    The move comes after parliament passed a resolution urging Mr Zardari to honour a promise made to the Taleban. :lol::lol::lol:

    2). And our Prime minister does't openly admit like Paki's prime minister....We know our PM is good for nothing creature but he does not says the following sentences....
    Terrorism has damaged Islam’s image: PM :- Terrorism has damaged Islam’s image: PM - thenews.com.pk

    So Farhaan baby before calling ShivSena RSS a terrorist spare some though for :-
    1). Hizbul Mujahadeen
    2). Lashkar e Toiba
    3). SIMI aka Student islamic movement of India
    4). Indian Mujahadeen
    5). Harkat UL Jihad e Islami aka Huji and more to follow........

    So buddy if u hate SAFFRON colour of Shiv Sena Terror u must realise how much we hate Paki n these Islamic terrorist GREEN colour terror.......

    foreign player have already got attacked in past, so what i asked is a genuine concern .

    Aids, cola, or dew are the personal choice and life of the players, why wud anyone be botherd about it.

    But protecting the life of the players is the states responsibility, and the matter of big concern.

    Hence i ask again, what if players get attacked AGAIN ?
