The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been generating a lot of interest among the viewers and has also succeeded in attracting the attention of all the global audience since its inception. Cricketers from all over the world wish to be a part of the cash-rich league. Even the ongoing edition of IPL has witnessed a lot of power-packed entertainment ever since it commenced a couple of weeks back. One-sided contests, thrilling comebacks, explosive opening partnerships between Bairstow-Warner and Lynn-Narine, Alzarri Joseph's dream debut, Hardik Pandya's excellent all-round performance and the 'Mankading' controversy have grabbed the spotlight in the ongoing edition.

However, former Pakistan batsman Rameez Raja seems to be someone who is focussing on certain aspects of IPL in a negative manner. Raja has been involved in the IPL as a commentator. The cricketer-turned-commentator was not happy with the fact that the coaches get involved by taking the lead role and giving tips to the team in a team huddle during the game time and expressed his disappointment on social media.

Raja faced the backlash from Netizens.

Pakistan had banned the telecast of Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket matches in the country, citing an "organised effort" by India to "harm" the game in Pakistan. 

In February, DSport -- the official broadcasters of the PSL in India -- stopped the coverage of the tournament in protest of the Pulwama attack carried out by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in which 40 CRPF Jawans were martyred, leading to escalating tensions with Pakistan.
