Former Pakistan cricket great Javed Miandad has called on the game’s governing body to take control of Twenty20 tournaments after none of the country’s players attracted any bids from Indian Premier League teams during its auction for players on today.
Pakistan is the reigning Twenty20 world champion and Miandad regards the failure to bid for its players as a snub
for the nation.
“It’s nothing less than humiliation, not only of our cricketers but the whole nation,” Miandad, the Pakistan
Cricket Board’s director of operations, told the Associated Press.
“When we call IPL an ICC approved tournament, it should mean that at least all the test playing countries will get a substantial representation in the event.”
