No ban on Akram : India Govt

New Delhi: Government of India on Monday brushed aside the reports that Pakistan former captain and expert commentator Wasim Akram has been denied to do a commentary stint in the Champions League tournament starting in India from October 8.

A report published by Pakistan daily "Jang" claimed that former Pakistan captain was prevented from doing the commentary in Champions League T20.

Indian Government clarified that there is no ban on Pakistani players and commentators in India. It is up to the TV channels to select their team and the government won't interfere in the process.

Interestingly, Wasim was invited by the Pakistan Cricket Board to supervise a fast bowlers coaching camp in Lahore in October but had declined the offer due to his commentary commitments in the Champions League tournament.
