Since the inception of Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008, it has evolved into one of the biggest cricketing carnivals around the world, featuring world-class players from a number of countries. Having said that though, Pakistani players are not allowed to participate in the IPL as per the regulations, even though this wasn’t the case in the first two seasons.

In the first couple of editions of IPL, Pakistani players were impactful, although the relations between India and Pakistan soured, which saw a subsequent ban on participation of Pakistani players in the cash-rich league.

In a parallel universe though, if the ban on these players was lifted, some players could have a big impact in India’s domestic T20 league as well.

Here are five Pakistani players who can be a major success in the IPL:
