Is Kevin Pietersen pulling out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 tournament?

Expectedly, last weeks militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Pakistan has made quiet a few of the English stars chary of participating in the IPL.

Among them, Flintoff who had earlier flip-flopped on his participation in the IPL despite a hip injury is the only player who has a genuine reason to opt out.

The others like Kevin Pietersen, Owais Shah,Ravi Bopara and Paul Collingwood are definitely looking for an excuse to escape from their contract.

As usual, Pietersen has taken the lead in voicing his concerns about security during IPL and this will surely set off a chorus.

However, one doubts whether these players can walk out unless something untoward happens. If the franchisees or IPL assures them their safety, then they will have to play irrespective of what their wives say.

They wont come and play . I think it is left to the players to come or not, Only thing is they wont get any money.
we have heard of some boards not wanting to send some players so that they can play for the ashes later.
