“Ludicrous”: Herschelle Gibbs Accuses Jay Shah Of Threatening Him Over KPL

The former South African batsman accused the BCCI and its secretary Jay Shah of threatening him over his participation in upcoming Kashmir Premier League (KPL) in Pakistan.

Former South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs made stunning revelations this morning as he accused the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and its secretary Jay Shah of threatening him over his participation in upcoming Kashmir Premier League (KPL) in Pakistan.

In a tweet posted on Saturday, Gibbs said: “Completely unnecessary of the @BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me playing in the @kpl_20 . Also threatening me saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous 🙄”

The South African batsman, who also holds a record of hitting six sixes in an over in ODI, gave an interview to sports website Sportskeeda. In this interview, Gibbs told Sportskeeda that Mr Jay Shah threatened him not to be permitted into India for any cricket-related work if he plays in the Kashmir Premier League. He disclosed to Sportskeeda that he sent this message to Graeme Smith, who then conveyed it to him.

“It came from Mr Shah. (The) message was sent to Graeme smith who passed it on to me,” Gibbs told Sportskeeda.

At the time of this report being prepared, the Sportskeeda story has been taken down by the authors. However, Gibbs’ tweet still remains at the top of his handle.

Gibbs’ allegation comes a day after former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif’s made similar remarks. Latif, in a tweet, had said that the BCCI was “warning cricket boards that if their former players took part in Kashmir Premier League, they won’t be allowed entry in India or allowed to work in Indian cricket at any level or in any capacity.”
