After the Pulwama attack which took place on 14th February 2019 in Kashmir, India is in a position to boycott Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Now as seen IMG Reliance has decided not to broadcast Pakistan Super League due to this terrorist incident that took place in Pulwama.
This is due to the killing of 40 members of Indian paramilitary police by a suicide bomber in Kashmir last week.
On Thursday, around 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers were killed in a terror attack while several others are struggling for their lives following what is being called as the deadliest terrorist strike in 3 decades in Jammu and Kashmir.
A mail was addressed to Sohaib Sheikh and Kamil Khan of Pakistan Cricket Board, the content of which is in possession of PTI states that – “Due to unfortunate events a couple of days back which resulted in the death of Indian soldiers, IMG Reliance is pulling out with immediate effects, from offering broadcast production services for PSL. The incident that happened is deeply regrettable”.
IMG Reliance (Indian event management company) has withdrawn the producing of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) and television channel D-Sport has suspended the Twenty20 league’s coverage in India.
Also, an official said that as the IMG Reliance were the only producers of the event, therefore, it will affect the development which means that Pakistan Super League aka PSL will go off the air until and unless the Pakistan Cricket Board brings up alternative production services.
