The Indian Premier League (IPL) has asked its legal advisors to look into the demands of the Pakistani cricketers regarding their payment row with their respective franschise.
Sources in the management company that is representing the players said that the IPL commissioner Lalit Modi had conveyed the matter of dues of the Pakistani players to the IPL legal advisors.
"Modi has assured us that these money matters would be cleared up soon and the players would get their dues," one source said.
The IPL is said to owe around four million dollar in total to the Pakistani players who were contracted to the IPL.
The Pakistan Cricket Board, on advise of its foreign ministry, had earlier banned its players from participating in the IPL after the country's relations with India deteriorated after the terror attacks in Mumbai in November.
But when the tournament was moved out of India, over security reasons, the Pakistan players were hopeful of returning but IPL officials said it wouldn't be possible as the squads had already been finalised.
