New Delhi. The second phase of IPL 2021 has started in UAE. With this, the fans have also returned in the IPL. A total of 29 matches were held in the first leg played by India. Now the remaining 31 matches will be held in UAE. IPL is getting exciting with every single day. The playoff battle has intensified. While fans across the world are immersed in the thrill of IPL, fans in Afghanistan will not be able to enjoy the live telecast of this league.
The reason behind this is the law of the Taliban. According to media reports, the broadcast of IPL 2021 has been banned in Afghanistan due to anti-Islam content. Due to the dance of cheerleaders during the match and the presence of taboo-haired women in the stadium, the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan government believes that the IPL match is supporting against their faith.
CSK won the first match of the second leg
That is why the UAE leg of this tournament will not be telecast in Afghanistan. The same was mentioned by Ibrahim Momand, former media manager of the Afghanistan Cricket Board. MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings won the first match of the UAE leg of IPL 2021. CSK beat Mumbai Indians by 20 runs.
