PCB welcomes govt's decision
The PCB chief Ejaz Butt welcomed the National Assembly speaker's decision of not sending any parliamentary delegation to India.
The treatment meted out to Pakistani cricketers in the IPL III auction has ignited a wild spread reaction from across the nation.
“No parliamentary delegations to India”
"I thank the Speaker and the August house for the solidarity shown with our players," Butt said in a statement.
"This decision will show the world that we support our national heroes and we stand together as a nation," he said.
The decision by the National Assembly speaker Fehmida Mirza came after opposition leader of the house Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan had also demanded that the government suspend all sporting ties with India in protest against what has transpired in Tuesday's Indian Premier League auction.
PCB angry over IPL snub
In Tuesday's IPL III auction, none of the 11 Pakistani cricketers up for bidding got a buyer because of the uncertainty regarding their participation in the March 12-April 25 Twenty20 event.
Nisar also called for an immediate suspension of screening of Indian movies in the country to send out a message to the neighbouring government that Pakistani people were not happy with the way their national cricketers were treated in the IPL III auction.
