Former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif has claimed that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has warned other cricket boards for allowing their former players to participate in the Kashmir Premier League (KPL).
Latif tweeted that the Indian board has warned these players and stated that they will not be allowed in India to work, even doing commentary and other related stuff in near future.
“The @BCCI is warning cricket boards that if there former players took part in Kashmir Premier League, they won’t be allowed entry in India or allowed to work in Indian cricket at any level or in any capacity. Gibbs, Dilshan, Monty Panesar & several others have been selected in KPL,” tweeted Latif.
Muzaffarabad Tigers owner, Arshad Khan Tanoli, has claimed their star player Dilshan will play all the matches in the inaugural edition of the competition.
“Dilshan’s participation is a slap in the face of BCCI and India. I have talked to Dilshan and he is excited to participate in KPL. He has already applied for Pakistan visa. We welcome Dilshan on behalf of all Pakistan and Kashmiri fans,” said Tanoli.
Meanwhile, Herschelle Gibbs has slammed BCCI for trying to stop him from participating in KPL.
“Completely unnecessary of the @BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me from playing in the KPL. Also threatening me saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous,” Gibbs tweeted.
