Former Pakistani batsman, Rashid Latif also spoke out against BCCI on Twitter, saying: “The @BCCI is warning cricket boards that if there former players took part in Kashmir Premier League, they won’t be allowed entry in India or allowed to work in Indian cricket at any level or in any capacity. Gibbs, Dilshan, Monty Panesar & several others have been selected in KPL,” he tweeted.

According to the league’s president, Arif Malik claimed that the tournament will go on as planned.
