India's ugly face against Pakistan exposed

ISLAMABAD – India threatened Sri Lankan players to opt Indian Premier League (IPL) or Pakistani tour, said Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry.

In a tweet on Tuesday, India threatened Sri Lankan players that they will be ousted from the IPL if they don’t refuse Pakistan visit, the minister told by the sports commentators.

Fawad Chaudhry slammed on Indian sports authorities, saying that this is really cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something.

“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, “ the minister tweeted.

Fawad Chaudhry’s tweet comes a day after, 10 Sri Lankan players, including T20 skipper Lasith Malinga and former captains Angelo Mathews and Thisara Perera, pulled out of the upcoming tour of Pakistan citing security concerns.

The Sri Lanka Cricket board said players in a preliminary squad were briefed on security arrangements for the six-match limited over series starting September 27 and given the freedom to decide if they wanted to travel.
