New Delhi:

The outrage over Pakistani players being ignored at the auction threatened to snowball into a major diplomatic row and there were reports that angry cricket fans burnt effigies of IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi in Lahore.
     
Some former players made a scathing attack against the IPL organisers and the franchise for humiliating the Pakistani players.

Former Pakistan cricket captain Zaheer Abbas suggested that the national hockey team should be withdrawn from the World Cup in India to protest the "humiliating" treatment meted out to the country's cricketers.
