KPL 2021: BCCI Threatening Foreign Players Not To Play in KPL
The Kashmir Premier League (KPL) awaits screens on August 6. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is threatening foreign players not to participate in KPL 2021. Pakistan’s legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi expressed his anger at that. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has leveled serious allegations against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over an issue published by Herschel Gibbs.
Tensions surrounding the opening edition of the Kashmir Premier League are not ending. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has filed serious allegations against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). After former South African cricketer Herschel Gibbs revealed on Twitter how the BCCI was barring him from participating in the league, the PCB issued a statement accusing the BCCI of violating international rules and the gentleman’s playing attitude.
Earlier, former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi wrote on Twitter,
‘It is really disappointing that the BCCI is again mixing cricket and politics! A league for cricket fans in KPL, Kashmir, Pakistan, and around the world. We will present an excellent arrangement and such behavior will not be hindered.
The BCCI has written to the boards of other countries not to allow their players to participate in the KPL. And if he takes part, it will be difficult for him to enter India for any cricketing reason in the future.
The KPL is starting in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir. The BCCI is not looking at anything well. The KPL is mainly attended by former cricketers from different countries who have no contract with the cricket board of their respective countries.
Really disappointing that BCCI is once again mixing cricket and politics! KPL is a league for Kashmir, Pakistan and cricket fans around the world. We will put up a wonderful show and won’t be deterred with such behaviour!! https://t.co/J9XcbEeUF6
