As of now, there's no possibility of Pakistani cricketers taking part in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

It has to wait till the bilateral series between the two countries starts. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice-president and IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla though said that there is no hatred against Pakistani cricketers.

“No one is against Pakistan or Pakistani players in India or else we would not have allowed Pakistani commentators or umpires in the IPL V season,” Shukla told a Pakistani news channel. “The reality is that everything is tied to the resumption of bilateral ties. Once that happens, everything will happen automatically,” he added.
