The league is supposed to be played in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and is backed Pakistani politician Shehryar Khan Afridi.

Gibbs in a tweet 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 tournament is likley to  see six teams- Overseas Warriors, Rawalakot Hawks, Muzaffarabad Tigers, Bagh Stallions, Kotli Lions and Mirpur Royals. Players like Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez, Shahid Afridi, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik, Gibbs, Monty Panesar and Kamran Akmal are expected to participate in this team.
