The spectators have also been allowed to go to the stadium and watch the match. While all the fans are eager to enjoy the match, its broadcast has been banned in Afghanistan.
Taliban is occupied in Afghanistan and now new decrees are being issued there. According to the latest developments, IPL matches will no longer be telecast in Afghanistan. Those in power believe that there is anti-Islam content in the tournament. The cheer leaders during the match do not cover their heads. The bosses of Afghanistan are angry with this.
During IPL matches, cheerleaders dance to cheer up their team. It is not acceptable for the government of Afghanistan to dance like this without covering the head. The Taliban-ruled Afghan government believes that the IPL is against their religious sentiments and attacks their beliefs. For this reason, it was decided to stop the broadcast of the second leg being played in the UAE in Afghanistan.
