Pakistani cricketers are not expected to participate in the second edition of the Legends League Cricket (LLC 2) that is due to run in September 2022. Although the men in green occupied a major part in one of the three teams named Asian Lions, they will be expelled following the Board of Control of Cricket in India's wish.
If the reports revolving are true, the Indian government is unlikely to issue visas to Pakistani cricketers, which makes their participation questionable in LLC 2. They were able to play LLC 1 since it took place in Oman, Muscat.
"I can't say much. If Pakistani cricketers get a visa from our government, then will play if not then no. We (BCCI) have no in the tournament or visa things,"
Pakistani players are expected NOT to participate in Legends League Cricket scheduled in India due to expected visa issue created by Government of India. A BCCI official claims no cricket with Pakistan means no grant of visa for Legends League Cricket aswell.— Arfa Feroz Zake (@ArfaSays_) August 13, 2022
It must be noted that LLC 2 has been shifted to India following great support from the country. Since the relations between the two countries are poor, BCCI feels there is no purpose in keeping the cricket ties.
Pakistan and India, following their political relations, do not face each other in bilateral series. They last played against each other in a bilateral series in 2012 and only see each other in ACC or ICC events.
Pakistani cricketers are now not allowed in the cash-rich Indian Premier League following the same context. It is the reason why they will not play CSA T20 league and UAE's ILT20 since the teams in newly-launched tournaments are owned by IPL teams' owners.
