Reports in main stream media suggest that Rashid Latif wants to invite former Indian captain, Virat Kohli to play during the next edition of the KPL (Kashmir Premier League).
Rashid Latif Wants Virat Kohli To Play In KPL
Director Cricket Operations for KPL, Rashid Latif while voicing the desire to see Virat Kohli playing in KPL said, “We should sent an invitation [to Virat Kohli] but the decision to play lies with the player. It’s good to initiate such a thing. I also advised [Najam] Sethi to send invitations to all cricket boards, which includes BCCI as well, for PSL.”
Pakistan’s former captain further added, “If we get good resources, we will try to put it to good use and organize a good tournament. We want people in Pakistan and outside Pakistan to enjoy the league.”
It is worth mentioning here that BCCI wasn’t happy the last time KPL was organized and did what it could to create hurdles. Last year former South African batsman Herschelle Gibbs went on record to criticize BCCI’s tactics. He had said, “Completely unnecessary of the BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me from playing in the KPL. Also threatening me saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous.”
