Pakistani cricket players want to be a part of IPL third season

It is very interesting that Indian cricket team does not go to Pakistan or invite any Pakistan cricket team for playing. This problem has been going on for many years and after the Mumbai violence of 2008 November, this has come to the point that their is no cricket contact between the two countries or in other words, India does not go to Pakistan or does not invite Pakistan to come to India to play. Now, it seems that BCCI is trying to keep the Pakistani players out of IPL 2010. Pakistani players are interested to take part in it because it is very lucrative as per as money is concerned. Lalit Modi is now willing to allow them. Perhaps more than Lalit Modi, it is the dire relationship between India and Pakistan that is causing all the problems. For example, Pakistani players could not manage visa for playing in IPL and as a result IPL authorities could not include them in the auction process.

I think that it is a political tactic by BCCI to keep PCB under a lot of pressure. BCCI is the richest cricket board now and they can do anything they like.
