Completely unnecessary of the @BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me playing in the @kpl_20. Also threatening me saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous”

For the unversed, the Kashmir Premier League is a tournament that was conceived by a Pakistani politician called Shehryar Khan Afridi. This tournament will have six teams including — Overseas Warriors, Muzaffarabad Tigers, Rawalakot Hawks, Bagh Stallions, Mirpur Royals, and Kotli Lions.  Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez, Shahid Afridi, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal will be leading these teams as skippers respectively.

Each team will feature five players from the “Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (POK)”, the area which has always remained disputed between India and Pakistan.

Meanwhile, the tweet went viral in no time and has been making rounds on the internet. Fans on social media came up with mixed reactions to the tweet. While there were a few who started slamming the BCCI, on the other hand, there were people who praised BCCI for the bold move and schooled Gibbs over the issue.
