The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has assured the International Cricket Council (ICC) that Pakistani contingent will face no complications during the Twenty20 World Cup later this year, Cricbuzz reported.
According to the cricket site, the concerns raised by Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani regarding visa issues of Pakistani players, media personnel and fans were addressed by the Indian cricket board.
“BCCI has written to the International Cricket Council (ICC) assuring them of no complications for the Pakistan contingent's passage into India for the tournament in October-November,” the report stated.
Earlier, Mani had asked ICC to shift the tournament to United Arab Emirates if India fails to provide written assurances to PCB regarding its concerns by March 31.
“I have asked the ICC that we need written confirmation that our players, fans and journalists in particular will be issued visas,” Mani had said. “ICC have assured us that we would get the confirmation by the end of this month as it’s our constitutional right.”
