Secretary of BCCI, Jay Shah has informed Apex Council about the decision of the government about giving visas to the Pakistan players. Indian government has given the permission to issue visas to Pakistan cricketers for T20 World Cup, which is to be held at The Narendra
Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Babar Azam-led Pakistan cricket team will be having no difficulty in travelling to India for the ICC T20 World Cup in October because the government has decided to grant visas to the players from Pakistan.
Apex Council member said that the problem of visas for Pakistan players has been solved but it is still not decided that fans will be able to come to India to watch the match or not. Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board chief Ehsan Mani has given the assurance that the team will be going to India for T20 World Cup with the full protocol or the tournament must be shifted to some other hosting place. PCB had also demanded a written assurance from ICC that India will issue the visas.
India and Pakistan have not played bilateral series for many years because of political issues between two countries. The match played between India and Pakistan has always been a high voltage match. Indiaalways defeated Pakistan in the World Cup match, both in the 50 over format and in the T-20 World Cup. India beat Pakistan six times in the 50 over format and five times in the T-20 format.
