The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and non-cricket upper Indian ministrations have threatened the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to suspend them from playing cricket in the Indian realm if they send their player to Pakistan for participating in the Kashmir Premier League (KPL 2021).

Four English players, Owais Shah, Monty Panesar, Phil Mustard, and Matt Prior are no more part of the inaugural release of the KPL 2021 now. Consequently, whilst taking the action over the scenario, the KPL management has decided to eliminate foreigners from the league.

As of now, the management will be opening up a list of local players to choose from as alternatives to the missing out foreigners. KPL also has informed Herschelle Gibbs and Tillakaratne Dilshan about the scenario but Sri Lanka’s Dilshan is ready to play despite all the odds.

Dilshan’s franchise, Muzaffarabad Tigers, will not have to replace their player but the rest of the five teams will bring up new five local faces to the limelight now.

Chairman Muzaffarabad Tigers, Arshad Khan Tanoli has appreciated his spirit assuring him of providing all possible facilities and security.

He said,

Dilshan’s arrival is a slap in the face to BCCI and India.

He added,

I Appreciate Dilshan’s spirit. I have talked to Dilshan, he is eager to participate in the league. He has applied for a Pakistani visa. The rest of the international players should also follow Dilshan.
