The controversy over Kashmir Premier League is creating a battle between the Board of Control and Pakistan Cricket Board. On Saturday, the PCB released a statement slamming BCCI’s alleged warning to several cricket boards against allowing their former players to take part in the tournament. The PCB said they would take up the matter with the ICC, calling BCCI’s actions against the spirit of the game.
Rashid Latif, Herschelle Gibbs allege BCCI of Warning Cricket Boards Against Participation in the Kashmir Premier League
Earlier on Saturday, former South African player Gibbs took to Twitter to slam the BCCI for interfering by bringing in their ‘political agenda’. News Agency ANI quoted an unnamed BCCI official as responding on their behalf, saying the board was well within its rights to do so.

“While one can neither confirm or deny the veracity of the statement made by a former player who has figured in a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) investigation into match-fixing earlier, the PCB must understand that even if Gibbs’s statement is assumed to be true, the BCCI would be well within their rights to take decisions with respect to the cricketing ecosystem in India.

“The fact that the Indian cricketing ecosystem is the most sought after for cricketing opportunities globally, should not be envied by the PCB."
ANI quoted the official as saying the PCB was confused, and that permitting anyone from playing or working in cricket in India was ‘purely an internal matter’. The official compared it to the restriction on Pakistan players in the IPL.
“They are welcome to raise the matter at the ICC and one can understand where this is coming from but the question that they need to ask themselves is whether it is on account of government interference in their working since the prime minister of Pakistan is officially their patron as per their own constitution. It is time to consider whether this issue also ought to be raised at the ICC."
The KPL will have six participating teams and they have drafted few foreign players like former Sri Lanka captain Tillakaratne Dilshan, former South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs and four former England cricketers among others.
Get all the.


I must say that it is about Tournament in a disputed territory as per the UN.

BCCI has every right to inform them if they will take the part then they will not allow in India.

BCCI indirectly supported PCL by not doing the same and allowed players to play in IPL. Otherwise, most of the TOP foreign players could not be playing in PCL.

It is a huge difference in the total budget- Total budget of one IPL franchise = Total budget of the PCL tournament.

BCCI and ICC officially in reality cant do much as KPL only requires one boards approval which it has received from PCB.

Agreed as same as BCCi can warm them if they will play then they are not allowed in any cricket related work in India..... Commentary, etc..
Main problem will be with active players for both countries,
To soon to actually say anything lets see where it actually stands after first season.

But in reality T20 cricket has destroyed actual cricket itself.

One thing it's not Indian crickets eco system rather its potential sponsors taht attracts ICC. Nevertheless PCB could have named it Azad Kashmir league rather than just Kashmir league, which would have more impact and more value as Pakistan controls only part of it and it would be helpful in battles.

Former England bowler Monty Panasar pulled out of the tournament as he was threatened he will be stopped from playing in the IPL and not allowed to visit India.

Did it miss Laddakh or it is a separate UT?

Anyway, I am happy for this unique solution by S.Adridi. It will highlight Kashmir anyway, no matter who starts/conduct it. So thank you BCCI. :partay:
