As tensions escalate between India and Pakistan, the people living in India have called on a full boycott of Pakistani goods and products.
In fact, BCCI has also called for a ban on Pakistani cricket team by the ICC which didn’t come into fruition.
The Pakistani Cricket Board (PCB) chairperson Ehsan Mani sent out invitations to the all the cricket boards around the world to attend the final of Pakistani Super League (PSL) which will take place on 17th March in Karachi. But BCCI has declined the invitation and ICC chairperson Shashank Manohar has also declined the invitation citing personal reasons.
“Both Khanna and Manohar have refused to visit Pakistan to watch the final of the tournament citing personal engagements,” Mani said.
“The idea behind sending the invitations is that when they come and see for themselves the arrangements for the final it will change the perception of people around the world about security in Pakistan and convince them it is safe to play international cricket in Pakistan,” he said.
However, officials from Afghanistan, England, Ireland, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sri Lanka will likely attend the final of PSL 2019 in Karachi.
