Pakistan cricket suffered a setback on Monday when ten Sri Lankan players refused to travel to the country for the limited-overs tour. Pakistan Minister Fawad Hussain has blamed India for the players’ decision. Hussain made a tweet on his official Twitter handle regarding the same.
Informed sports commentators told me that India threatened SL players that they ll be ousted from IPL if they don’t refuse Pak visit, this is really cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something we must condemn, really cheap on the part of Indian sports authorities— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) September 10, 2019
Earlier, Sri Lanka Cricket in a statement had said, “The meeting was aimed at informing the players about the security arrangements.”
