IPL and India made fun of us and our country: Afridi and IPL auction shuns Pakistan stars

KARACHI: Captain Pakistan Twenty20 cricket team Shahid Afridi reacted angrily on the auction of the Indian Premier League and said that not only he but the Pakistani nation has been made fun of.

Talking with Geo News from Sydney, Australia, Shahid Afridi said "The way I see it, the IPL and India have made fun of us and our country by treating us this way".

"For me the attitude of the franchises was disappointing. I feel bad for the Indian people who I am sure wanted to see us play in the IPL this year," said all-rounder Afridi, who was on offer for the relatively low base price of USD 250,000.

Afridi said that the cricket lovers wanted to see Pakistan players taking part in the IPL.

He said that the Pakistan team is the T20 world champion and every member of this team is valuable but no franchise offered any price for them which reflects their intentions for Pakistani players.

Despite Indians’ hate for Pakistanis and their discriminatory attitude towards Pakistani players, artists, some pro-India elements in Pakistan are still bluffing us on the pretext of friendship with India.

MUMBAI: Pakistani cricketers will not feature in the third edition of the Indian Premier League this year after being ignored by franchises at the players’ auction on Tuesday.

None of the 11 Pakistanis who went under the hammer, including flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi, were sold despite their national team being the reigning World Twenty20 champions.

Pakistani cricketers took part in the IPL’s inaugural season in 2008, but were denied permission by Islamabad to play last year due to growing political tensions with India.

Multi-millionaire owners of the eight clubs, who attended the auction, declined to comment on why the Pakistanis were kept out.
