The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has written to the International Cricket Council (ICC), seeking assurance that India will issue visas to the Pakistani team for the T20 World Cup to be held in November, said PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.

He was speaking at a press conference Sunday after the 61st meeting of the PCB’s Board of Governers (BoG).

“India are set to host the T20 World Cup in October-November this year,” said Mani. “I have told the board that we want written confirmation from India that our fans, journalists, and players will get visas. I have a meeting with ICC and I will raise this point once again.”

Mani also reiterated that if the assurances are not given, the PCB will then ask the ICC To shift the tournament to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“The ICC has said that the assurance will come by March,” he added. “If we do not get the assurance, then the tournament needs to be moved. We have a visa problem, Covid-19 situation also needs to be looked at. The ICC has made a contingency plan that if T20 World Cup cannot be played in India, then it will go ahead in the UAE.”
