Rishi Kapoor pleas to include Pakistan players in Indian Premier League

Rishi Kapoor pleas to include Pakistan players in Indian Premier League

MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has urged authorities to draft in Pakistani players in the Indian Premier League T20 citing the inclusion of Afghanistan players Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan, who are part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad.

The Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor took to twitter and urged the concerned authorities to include Pakistani players in the IPL once again.

“You got world players. Afghanistan makes debut. My plea is please consider Pakistani players,” he wrote.

 

The 10th edition of the lucrative T20 league kicks off at Hyderabad on Wednesday with Royal Challengers Bangalore locking horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

No Pakistani player has been a part of the IPL since after 2008, its year of inception. Azhar Mahmood, however, featured in quite a few editions representing Kings XI Punjab owing to his British passport.

In IPL 2017, two Afghanistan cricketers -- Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan -- will make their debut for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Though the two nations continue to play cricket in international tournaments, they haven’t played a Test series in nearly a decade.
