The upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League won’t be telecast in Pakistan after their Information and Broadcasting ministry decided to ban the Indian Premier League.
They took this step after the telecast of the Pakistan Super League was stopped in India following the attack on the convoy of CRPF personnel that claimed the lives of 40 bravehearts.
“During the PSL, the way the Indian companies and the government treated Pakistan cricket… after that, we can’t tolerate that IPL is shown in Pakistan,” Chaudhry told a Pakistan news channel.
“We tried to keep politics and cricket apart but then the Indian cricket team played matches wearing army caps against Australia.
“There was no action taken against that. I feel if IPL is not shown in Pakistan it will be a loss for IPL and Indian cricket. We are a cricketing superpower in international cricket,” the minister added.
