Former South African cricketer Harshal Gibbs has revealed a shocking revelation. He has accused the Indian Cricket Control Secretary (BCCI) Jai Shah of threatening him that he would not be allowed to play any kind of cricket in India if he played in the Kashmir Premier League. Jump Gibbs says he got this information through South Africa’s current cricket director, Graeme Smith.
Gibbs had previously tweeted, ‘The BCCI is doing absolutely unnecessary work to balance my political agenda with Pakistan and prevent it from playing in the Kashmir Premier League. He also threatened me not to enter India for any cricket related work. This attitude is quite wrong.

Apart from Gibbs, former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif has also made similar allegations against the BCCI. He said, “The BCCI is threatening many cricket boards. If their former players participate in the Kashmir Premier League, they will not be allowed to enter India for any cricket related work. Herschelle Gibbs, Sri Lanka’s Tilakaratne Dilshan, England’s Monty Panesar and many others have been selected for the league. Let us tell you that this league was organized for the first time, starting on August 4th. The final of the league will be held on August 17, with 6 teams participating.
