Lahore:

Reacting to the boycott of Pakistani players in the DLF IPL 3 auction, former Test captain Zaheer Abbas has said that the Pakistani players must realise that Indian Premier League is a private league and that the authorities can take the final call.

"The fact is the IPL is a private enterprise and if their franchises are not willing to take our players what can anyone do. But there is no doubt that our players and Pakistan cricket have been humiliated and insulted at such a big forum in a planned manner," he told The News, a Pakistan daily.

Adding fuel to fire, Abbas said that if the Pakistan Board was really hurt by the 'unfair deal' to their players, they should call for a total boycott of ties with India.

"Our players and officials should also not go to India for any reason. But if we want a betterment of ties with India then we should just keep quiet," he said.
