New Delhi:

The Pakistan Cricket Board did a U-turn from their earlier stance and have cleared the players to participate in IPL's second season to be played in South Africa.

According to Saleef Altaf, PCB's Chief Operating Officer, it has been conveyed to the IPL chairman Lalit Modi.

"The same has been conveyed to IPL Commissoner Lalit Modi via an official email by the PCB earlier today. A reply regarding the same is still awaited from Mr Modi's end," Altaf said.

However, chances of Pakistani players making to their respective teams look bleak as the squads were already announced.

"We can't include them in the teams because the team lists have already been made. Pakistan Cricket Board is very late in deciding. The Pakistan players will not be included," said Dhiraj Malhotra, IPL's Tournament Director.
