(CNN) -- Pakistan cricketers have been told they will not be allowed to appear in the highly-lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) this coming season because of fears over security.

Stars from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and, for the first time, England will be competing in the action that starts on April 10.

Several Pakistan stars had also signed for IPL franchises while another five, including leg-spinner Danish Kaneria, were scheduled to appear at a players' auction to be held in Goa, India, on Thursday.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said players would not be allowed to play in the IPL this coming season on government advice.

Wow! Thats something..the pakistani's dont feel safe in India. Sounds logical..they would require extra security considering the anti pak sentiments floating in India. Sri Lankan players should be careful too, those Tamil Nadu nut cases, one never knows what could happen.
