Mahmood, who has featured in 21 Tests and 143 ODIs for Pakistan, was bought by KXIP for US $200,000 but not been able to play in the IPL as he was not granted the Indian visa.

Earlier, the team management, to hide the status, had said Mahmood had himself taken a short break because of domestic reasons.

The Punjab team is hoping to bolster their bowling and batting attack by Mahmood’s presence, as they are also without English pacer Stuart Broad, who was ruled out because of injury.

Mahmood will be the only former Pakistani player to feature in this season’s IPL.
