ICC has refused to act on the request of the BCCI as the league doesn't come under its jurisdiction.

Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI wanted the apex body of international cricket to not recognize the upcoming edition of the Kashmir Premier League. However, the ICC has refused to act on the request of the BCCI as the league doesn’t come under its jurisdiction.

Earlier, the Indian cricket board has made it clear that any player featuring in the league will not be allowed to come to India for any cricketing activities.

“While asking the boards not to allow their players to take part in the Kashmir league, we have informed them that in case they do, they can’t be part of any cricketing activity in India. We have done this keeping national interest in mind. We have no problems with those playing the Pakistan Super League (PSL) but this is a league in PoK. We are toeing our government’s line,” the BCCI official had said.

The inaugural edition of the KPL is set to start on August 6 with six teams in the fray for the title.

“The tournament is not under ICC’s jurisdiction as it is not an international cricket tournament,” an ICC spokesperson said while speaking to Geo TV.
