Former South Africa player Herschelle Gibbs has accused the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) of “trying to prevent” him from participating in Pakistan’s Kashmir Premier League (KPL).

Taking to Twitter, Gibbs claimed that the BCCI is threatening him of denying him entry in India if he participates in the league.

He tweeted, “Completely unnecessary of the @BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me playing in the @kpl_20 . Also threatening me saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous.”

These allegation comes a day after former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif’s made similar remarks. In a tweet, Latif said that the BCCI was “warning cricket boards that if their 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.”

Kashmir Premier League is a T-20 cricket tournament conceived by a Pakistani politician called Shehryar Khan Afridi. The tournament will have six teams: Overseas Warriors, Muzaffarabad Tigers, Rawalakot Hawks, Bagh Stallions, Mirpur Royals and Kotli Lions are the six teams in the tournament.

The first edition of the league is set to played from August 6 to August 16.
