The Pakistan Cricket Board will file a complaint with the ICC after its players were ignored during the IPL auction earlier this week.

The eight IPL franchises on Tuesday did not bid for any of the 11 Pakistan cricketers _ including its Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi. Pakistan sports minister Ijaz Jhakrani on Friday called the exclusion of Pakistan players "a serious issue." Pakistan is the reigning world Twenty20 champion after winning the title in England last year.

After meeting the PCB chairman in Lahore, Jhakrani said "it's our unanimous decision to take up this issue at the highest forum and lodge our protest at the ICC."
