LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has expressed its disappointment at Control for Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) threats to foreign players to withdraw from the Kashmir Premier League (KPL).

In a released statement, PCB said they will take this matter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) as India again failed to respect the spirit of the men’s game.

“The PCB believes that the BCCI has discredited the game by issuing warnings to multiple ICC members to prevent their retired cricketers from appearing in KPL, further threatening that they will not be allowed to enter India for cricket-related work,” said PCB.

“Such conduct by the BCCI is completely unacceptable, violates the Spirit of Cricket preamble and sets a dangerous priority, which cannot be tolerated or ignored,

“The PCB will raise this matter in the appropriate ICC forum and also reserves the right to take any further action available to us within the ICC charter,” the PCB statement said.

It should be noted that KPL is all set to start from 6 August in Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir with six teams. Former England players including Monty Panesar, Matt Prior, Phil Mustard and Owais Shah, and former South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs withdrew from the event due to Indian pressure. Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan announced that he would play the league despite all the pressure from Indians.
