Are IPL franchises right in snubbing Pakistani players in IPL auction?
The third IPL auction, held in Mumbai recently, has been overshadowed by a controversy arising from the fact that not a single Pakistani player of the 11 on the auction list - including several of the World Cup-winning team - was picked up.
Pakistan`s players have reacted with anger and attributed the blackout to politics.
The IPL has said it was the franchises` decision and the franchises have explained it on grounds of cricketing strategy or availability during the tournament.
Was it right on the part of the franchises to ‘collectively boycott’ Pakistani players, who are the current Twenty20 World Champions?
Or, is it just a purely a business policy which was wrongly misinterpreted in Pakistan due to the volatile political relationship between the two countries?
