Mr. Abbas told the media in Lahore that if Pakistani players were included in the IPL, “it would raise the importance and status of the league.”

Mr. Abbas also called for the revival of bilateral cricket ties between Pakistan and India.

“I have accepted the invitation [to watch the IPL final] and it is a good opportunity for me to again highlight the importance of resuming bilateral cricket ties although they are obviously subject to government clearances,” he said.

“I think any government hurdles in the way of having a bilateral series should be removed,” he added.
