Indian Premier League can have Pakistani players only once bilateral cricket ties with India are restored on a permanent basis, according to a Pakistan Cricket Board official.

Pakistani players would only be able to play in the Indian Premier League once bilateral cricket ties with India were restored on a permanent basis, according to a Pakistan Cricket Board official, PTI reported.

The former chairman of the PCB Najam Sethi, who now heads the powerful executive committee, told reporters that the possibility of Pakistani cricketers participation in the IPL would only arise once bilateral ties resumed this year in December.

"I don't know why it is like this but the fact is Indo-Pak cricket ties are always dictated by the existing government to government level ties between the two countries," Sethi said.
