Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has condemned Indian cricket authorities pressuring Sri Lankan cricketers into opting out of Pakistan tour, on Tuesday.

Minister claims that he was informed of this wrongdoing by a sports commentator.

By taking it to social media, in a tweet Fawad Chaudhry stated, “Informed sports commentators told me that India threatened SL players that they ‘ll be ousted from IPL if they don’t refuse Pak visit, this is really cheap tactic, jingoism from sports to space is something we must condemn, really cheap on the part of Indian sports authorities”.
