New Delhi:

Pakistani players who want to play in the Indian Premier League next year will not have visa hurdles to come to India, a top government source said on Tuesday.

"There will not be any problem in issuing visa to Pakistani players for the IPL," the source said.

Seven Pakistani cricketers played in the first IPL but they could not feature in the Twenty20 tournament this year after being barred by their government to travel to India due to tense relations between the two countries after the Mumbai terror attacks.

IPL on Monday said Pakistani players' participation will have to be confirmed by their Cricket Board through an NOC and clearance from their government.

Senior Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq on Tuesday said PCB has granted NOCs to its players to take part in the next IPL.
