Shahid Afridi’s stern message to BCCI: “KPL 2 is happening”

Shahid Afridi is no stranger to controversies. On Thursday, the former Pakistan all-rounder mocked the Indian cricket board BCCI by suggesting Kashmir Premier League 2 will happen. 

Last year, 7 teams started playing in KPL. Afridi and other Pakistani-born players play in the league. ICC hasn’t recognised the competition. An ICC spokeswoman told Geo TV last year, “The competition is not within ICC’s jurisdiction because it’s not international.” According to Afridi, the BCCI opposes the competition because it’s in Pakistan. India and Pakistan dispute Occupied Kashmir’s Muzaffarabad.

Here’s the video of the signing ceremony between KPL and Shahid Afridi:

Herschelle Gibbs accused the BCCI of pressuring him to skip the league last year. Gibbs tweeted that the BCCI’s attempt to ban him from participating in the KPL was unnecessary. Threatening not to let me into India for cricket work. Ludicrous’.

Pakistan Cricket Board accepted KPL and criticised BCCI for pressuring players to play. They warned the BCCI to involve ICC.

Shahid Afridi’s strong message for the BCCI

Afridi stirred up controversy before the second edition of the league. During a news conference, he was asked about the BCCI, which reportedly tampered with KPL last year. Afridi said that his only message to the BCCI was that KPL 2 is happening.

Afridi has previously made comments about Kashmir and Narendra Modi. He famously claimed that the world has a fatal disease, but Modi was much more dangerous.

In 2020, he went to the LoC to show Kashmiris’ solidarity’ after the Indian government repealed Article 370.
