My answer is mostly similiar to A Moin's answer with a few additional points.

The Pakistan minister has said this because he wants to gather support by painting india as a villain. Most politicians , all over the world , have this habit of creating a villain ,and then appearing either a victor or a martyr . Politicians in india are guilty of this as well

The IPL team owners have stayed away from 'buying' Pakistani players is because they are a very risky investment. Moin has hit the nail on its head. If Pakistani players were a good investment, the IPL team owners, using their clout, would have got them. To prove this, i will take you people back to IPL season 1. Shoaib Akhtar was banned by PCB. Fo drug abuse, for hitting his own team-mate (Bhajji is not the first). The entire cricketing fraternity had condemned him . But the ban was overturned, so that he could play in the IPL.

There is not a single Paistani cricketer whom i would love to watch. Things were a bit different as ...more

Respect has got to be earned through one's actions. And in the recent past Pakistan's actions have been anything but respect worthy. .

The Pakistani players were rejected from IPL not because of talent shortage or because of IPL's hatred for Pakistanis but because Pakistani players are a risky investment when signing a contract w/ them over a time period. Because visa situation between Pak and India has gotten rather frisky as of late esp over Kashmir.

SAy if u r Shahid Afridi and I am IPL team owner SRK or whoevers who calls the shot....if I got u, then I have to pay u for the full contract. Then , in the lifespan of my contract, if Indian Govt suddenly issues a visa restriction or a visa cut, then I lose my investment.

This is sort of like why fishermen don't go to fish on stormy seas...too risky on boat and life.

Anyway, yes sir, I believe the Pak players of cricket are sportsmen, have nothing to do w/ the stuff which happens in J and K, and the GoI could at least issue a statement of guarantee that the particular 11 folks or a 15 total plus backup squad Pak cric team in total with their names- would b ...more

Mr. Ghura, can you please remind those block headed people that they got what they deserve.
After all those jokers came all the way from Pakistan to India for auctioning themselves like cattles and goats. They have no right to shout at buyers. They must wait silently for the next auction.
That's all.
Thanks.
