Pak players get visa for IPL
NEW DELHI: The Indian Home Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday has cleared visas for four Pakistani players who were scheduled to be a part of the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The four players are Sohail Tanvir, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Gul, Kamran Akmal. The Pakistan Cricket Board said at the time that all the visa papers had been sent to the Indian High Commissions in Islamabad and New Zealand where the Pakistan team is currently playing a series.
They said that the delay was all from the Indian side. With the Indian MEA now clearing those visas, it''s likely that the Pakistani cricketers will be allowed to play in March next year.
The Indian Premier League 3 will be played at various venues in the country in March-April.
