Pakistan players show interest in IPL auction
At least twelve Pakistan cricketers have applied to the IPL to be included in the next player auction which takes place next month ahead of IPL 3.0.
After missing out on Visa's earlier this month the players were told by IPL commissioner Lalit Modi that the only way they could play in the next IPL would be to take part in the next auction, even if they were already had IPL contracts.
"There is an auction coming up on January 19. If there are spots open at the auction point. They can then apply through the auction" said Modi.
"As far as reversing these contracts is concerned, it's a very difficult system because we have a system in place. And we can't abuse the system. And everybody was given a fair chance to be able to go out there and prove their case and also present their NOC's and letters"
"As they have missed the deadline, the teams have replaced these players and signed new contracts. So there are contractual obligations that come into place," he said."
Although no further details have been announced Kamran Akmal, Sohail Tanvir, Misbah-ul-Ha have all expressed interested in taking part in the auction.
