A Pakistani minister on Tuesday made an outrageous claim after 10 Sri Lankan players decided to opt-out of an upcoming Pakistan tour, ‘The New Indian Express’ reported.  

Science and Technology Minister Fawad Hussain Chaudhry said India had threatened the players from the island nation against participating in the upcoming series against the Men in Green.  


He even claimed that India could have used threats that the Sri Lankan players would lose their IPL contracts if they travelled to Pakistan.  


“Informed sports commentators told me that India threatened SL players that they will be ousted from the IPL if they did not refuse the Pakistan visit; this is really a cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something we must condemn, really cheap on the part of Indian sports authorities,” Chaudhry tweeted.
