SRINAGAR - Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan along with 100 other Kashmiri cricketers asked to leave Srinagar immediately by Indian Forces.
Occupied Jammu and Kashmir cricket team mentor-cum-coach Irfan Pathan said he, along with around 100 other cricketers, have been asked to leave a cricket camp in the state at the earliest.
This came after the Jammu and Kashmir administration issued an advisory to tourists and Amarnath Yatris to leave the Valley immediately, citing terror threat.
Speaking to ANI, Pathan said, "Our camp has been shut down and the cricketers were sent back to their homes.
The camp was from June 14 to July 14 and after a break of ten days, the camp restarted from July 25. Yesterday, about 100 players were sent back to their homes."
"The matches were scheduled from July 31 till August 17. These matches were organised for the selection of district cricketers," he added.
