IPL. You got world players. Afghanistan makes debut. My plea is please consider Pakistani players. Phir match hoga! (match will happen then!) Hum bade log hain (We are big people). Please, Rishi tweeted.

MUMBAI (IANS) — Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has made a plea for Pakistani players to be considered for playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) again.

The 64-year-old actor took to Twitter on Tuesday night, on the eve of the opening ceremony of the 10th edition of the premier cricket tournament.

“IPL. You got world players. Afghanistan makes debut. My plea is please consider Pakistani players. Phir match hoga! (match will happen then!) Hum bade log hain (We are big people). Please,” Rishi tweeted.

Two Afghanistan cricketers Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan will make their debut in the T20 league tournament for Sunrisers Hyderabad this year.

Rishi’s plea comes at a time when the ties between the two countries are going through a rough patch. No Pakistani player has played in the IPL after 2008.

The 10th edition of IPL will commence from Wednesday evening with Royal Challengers Bangalore playing Sunrisers Hyderabad.
