IPL faces a major blow, Pakistan bans coverage of top Indian league
ISLAMABAD - Indian Premier League (IPL) suffered a major blow on Wednesday as federal government has decided to slap ban on coverage of India’s top cricket tournament in Pakistan.
A summary in this regard has been forwarded to the cabinet for approval.
As per details garnered, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) will ensure that ban on IPL coverage must be implemented in its true letters and spirit.
A seemingly possible ban means that IPL will lose multi-million dollar lucrative Pakistani market; second only to India in cricket world.
The decision has been taken against the backdrop of ban on coverage of matches of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in India.
