    There is such a thing as professional conduct between cricket boards. I have no doubt whatsoever that the BCB right from the get go weren't going to send their players. They used us by pretending to agree in order to get the ICC vote from the PCB. Once they had the PCB's vote they refused. It is ridiculous for the PCB to ask them to tour but it's equally ridiculous to show such deception by the BCB. And if you think they are innocent in all this think again because our players still haven't been paid from the first BPL. Lying ****s.

    Yeah, the BCB are not innocent in this at all but situations change over time and both boards should have not come to this untenable agreement in the first place.

    But now, by forcing Pakistan players out i am not sure what is sort to be achieved ? BCB for the money they are paying should get replacements and it will be the players who suffer most.

    A lot of non Pakistani players have said no since no one has been paid. BCB probably needs Pakistani players and they should be punished for their deception.

    Situations change but as I have mentioned, I don't believe for a second that they actually considered ever sending their players. Should have said no straight up.

    Wasn't it BCB's turn for Presidency anyway after Pakistan brought in Ehsan Mani last time ?

    And just realized BPL is to begin tomorrow. Pulling players out so close to this time is pretty cruel and even those players that are not in Pakistan contention anymore. Will PCB compensate ?

    As it is these players are not allowed in IPL and may not be again next time, with tensions rising recently.

    Mentioned it in another thread that our former board president to be blamed for agreeing in the first place and what's more ridiculous is that he denied this few days ago when everyone knows what happened. There is also a tension between current and former president as the current one has to solve all these issues created by former president. Players are made scapegoat by both the boards in this whole saga which is most pathetic. There was a good relationship between BCB and PCB which is all buried now.

    I don't blame the Bangladeshi players. And PCB was stupid to put the safety of the players at risk. No one should be visiting Pakistan at the moment. I am just mad that they were willing to even consider PCB's proposal and went as far as agreeing to it in exchange for votes and then withdrawing afterwards.

    At the very least they should publicly apologise and not act as if it was PCB's fault.

    sorry mate I was referring to the boards that they brought this upon players and complicated things more and yeah I also think both the boards should realize that they made mistakes and handled this unprofessionally

    Pakistan have offered an insurance policy of $2 million and tax-free income for foreign cricketers who are thinking of participating in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

    Pakistan have not hosted international cricket since terrorists attacked the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009. Since then they have had to play their "home" matches at offshore venues such as England and the UAE. The idea of having a PSL in the country is a strategic move by the PCB to win back the confidence of cricketing nations.

    But the world professional cricketers' union FICA has raised its concerns over the security situation in Pakistan and warned players against taking part in the PSL, citing it an unmanageable risk. "We understand their concerns and we can't blame them," Zaka Ashraf, PCB chairman, told ESPNcricinfo. "It's the negative perception about Pakistan that has to be changed and people should understand that things are not so bad.

    "But for their sense of security we are offering an optional insurance policy worth $2 million for the satisfaction of their families. They will be our special guests and we are ensuring every possible step to give them security at a higher level and if they think this isn't enough they can take the insurance option as well."

    Cricket operations in Pakistan aren't tax exempted but the PCB is offering residential and non-residential players tax-free income from the PSL. Apart from the "emerging" players, they stand to earn between $25,000 and $100,000 for taking part in a 10-day tournament. The base price for the top category diamond player starts at $100,000.

    "Government is ready to grant us the exemption on income of the PSL and it's an added advantage of our product for the players to earn tax free income," Ashraf said. "We are offering the most money compared to the other leagues in the world. In ten days you can get the most out of it before going to the IPL starting in April."

    I'm glad they did that because now everyone will think twice before visiting Pak.

    Awesome piece written by Kamran Abbassi on cricinfo

    Blogs: Kamran Abbasi: Neros fiddle while Pakistan's talent burns | Cricket Blogs | ESPN Cricinfo

    very nicely and scathingly voicing the frustration of Pakistan cricket fans on the selection of the squad for Zimbabwe
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Welcome to the club.

    It is a fact that due to God gifted cricketing talents embedded in all Pakistanis right from the grassroot level to the top class cricket circles, there are plenty of cricketers of Pakistani origin winning laurels for their teams all over the world and Azharullah is no exception to it.

    It's only up to the powerful electronic and print media to identify, pick and introduce these 'green-shirts' cricketers to the global cricket fraternity no matter which part of the world they are playing and which team they are representing. Rest as they say will be history as seen and confirmed in few cases that came to the fore like that of Fawad Ahmad, Imran Tahir, Usman Khawaja and many others.
