ISLAMABAD (Agencies) - The Foreign Office on Monday barred its cricketers from competing in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament in the wake of last year's terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Five cricketers, who have been asked not to travel to India, include Yasir Hameed, Danish Kaneria, Asim Kamal, Mohammad Hafiz and Yasir Arafat. These players had to go to India to participate in the IPL auction ceremony. The Ministry of Sports had already given them permission to visit India. The three-point advisory issued from the foreign ministry hints at strained Indo-Pak relations in the wake of Mumbai attacks. It says that Indian cricket team refused to visit Pakistan and that India has not given security guarantee to Pakistani players. "We have been informed by the foreign ministry today that the situation is not conducive for Pakistan cricketers to travel to India," Sports Minister Aftab Jilani said. The above-mentioned five Pakistani cricketers were due to appear in the IPL player auction at the Indian state of Goa on February 10. Shafi Baloch from Karachi adds: Sindh High Court on Monday suspended ban imposed by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on playing domestic cricket by some players who were affiliated with the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL). The court has sought explanation from the PCB till February 10. The single bench comprising of Justice Ameer Hani Muslim was conducted the hearing over the suit moved by fast bowler Mohammad Sami and others who challenged the imposition of ban on playing domestic cricket since late 2007. The court has asked the PCB officials to submit their comments that under which law they stopped the cricketers from playing domestic cricket. The Pakistani players who were banned by the PCB included former captain Inzamamul Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Sami, Rana Naved, Saqlain Mushtaq, Naveed Latif, Hasan Raza, Taufeeq Umar, Imran Nazir, Shahid Nazir and others. They moved the court through Zahid G Ibrahim advocate against chairman PCB challenging introduction of new clause in Playing Condition of PCB Rules. Ibrahim said that now the Pakistani players were able to play domestic cricket till further orders from the court. The PCB had imposed domestic and international cricket ban on nearly two dozen players many of whom have played for the national team before they joined the ICL. On the other side, council representing the plaintiffs had recently sent a letter to the Board asking it to explain the ban on the players but after an unsatisfactory response a case has been filed in the Sindh High Court. A senior official of a top department which employs several ICL players said if the court had given a ruling than they had no choice but to abide by the orders. The players can appear in the next round of the Quaid-e-Azam trophy, and other such domestic events. Justice Muslim said: "I have heard the plaintiff's counsel and material available on record. Prima facie a case of ad-interim order is made out. I accordingly suspend Playing Condition 2.2 of defendant to extent that it would not apply plaintiffs participating in any league or cricket event outside Pakistan. Plaintiffs shall be allowed to participate in the forthcoming Quaid-e-Azam Trophy." The court issued notice to defendant, chairman PCB, for February 10, 2009.
