Karachi: Pakistan's T20 captain, Mohammad Hafeez feels the Pakistan Cricket Board should sort out the issue of Pakistani players not being allowed to play in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).

"It is strange that for years now Pakistani players have not been allowed to play in the IPL because it is a world class league and there is so much to learn from it," Hafeez said in an interview to 'Express' newspaper.

"I played in the first season of the IPL and I got a chance to share the dressing room with greats like Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Pointing and it was a great learning experience. I believe that what our players are missing out the most is this aspect of playing in the IPL," he said.
