NEW DELHI: The official broadcaster for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in India, D-Sport, has suspended the broadcast of the T20 competition in the wake of the recent deadly attack targeting Indian security forces in Held Kashmir's Pulwama area, India media reported on Sunday.

The media quoted an official from the broadcaster saying the broadcast of PSL has been suspended. However, they added that D-Sport was yet to release an official statement regarding the matter.

After the attack, the league's matches between Islamabad United and Multan Sultans and the Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings on Saturday were broadcast. It added that till the day of the attack, the channel's Twitter handle had primarily been posting updates related to the PSL. "However, since February 15, the twitter handle has been posting tweets on MMA promotions Cage Warriors and Bellator. The only cricket-related tweet since then was a birthday greetings message for former South African captain AB de Villiers, who is playing for Lahore Qalandars in the PSL," the report added.

Taking to Twitter, users also noted that CricBuzz was no longer covering the PSL. The website appears to have no coverage of matches being played today. However, previous articles of PSL matches can still be found on the website.
