According to PCB, The Indian Government Issues Pakistani Team Visas For The World Cup

According to PCB, The Indian Government Issues Pakistani Team Visas For The World Cup

September 26, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


The Pakistani team’s visas were finally granted by the Indian government on Monday, allowing them to go for the neighboring nation for the World Cup after several delays, Pakistan Cricket Board spokesperson Umar Farooq Kalson revealed

Finally got a call to pick up the passports from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, he added.

The squad will depart from Lahore for Dubai on September 27 before travelling to Hyderabad, India, for two exhibition games against New Zealand and Australia on September 29 and October 3, respectively.

After the PCB complained to the International Cricket Council (ICC) about “extraordinary delays” in the issue of Indian visas, today’s development took place a short while later.

Farooq stated, “We have written to the ICC highlighting our concerns over the unfair treatment of Pakistan and reminded them of these commitments towards the World Cup.

“It’s disappointing that the Pakistani team has to deal with uncertainty before the important competition.”

It had all come down to the final two days with the national team’s first warm-up game planned for September 29. Farooq said the board had been reminding the ICC of duties for the previous three years, but it had all come down to the last two days.

“We had to abandon our initial plan to do team-building activities in Dubai while travelling to India. We have to alter our itinerary and make new reservations, but all arrangements are contingent on the issue of visas, the representative continued.

ESPNcricinfo reports that the visa application was submitted more than a week ago.

The team’s pre-World Cup team-building activity in Dubai had been postponed due to visa issues.

Earlier, the group was supposed to fly out to Dubai on September 25 and spend two days there. On October 6, Pakistan will face the Netherlands in their inaugural game.

In order to attend the competition, fans and media had to apply for visas online through the website of the Indian High Commission.

The applicants were disappointed to see that the webpage was still unavailable. A journalist from Lahore who covers sports stated he and his colleagues sports reporters had to pay agents to fill out the online applications for them in order to avoid potential visa issues.

Visa applicants said they had been instructed to use a VPN in order to access the high commission’s website due to problems with accessibility.

Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the country’s national cricket regulatory body, and the International Cricket Council (ICC) all complained that even media members accredited with them were having problems.

If the problem remained, the group urged the Indian High Commission to accept handwritten visa applications. The message also said that because there wasn’t much time left until the huge event started, the media should be assisted.

World Cup Match Between India And Pakistan Is Scheduled For Ahmedabad

World Cup Match Between India And Pakistan Is Scheduled For Ahmedabad

June 28, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


The International Cricket Council said on Tuesday that India will host Pakistan’s cricket team for the first time in seven years at the 50-over World Cup in October, with the first semi-final taking place in Mumbai on November 15 and the second in Kolkata the following day.

On October 5, the world’s largest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad, which will also host the championship match, will open the tournament with a match between the defending champions England and New Zealand.

The most anticipated match between rivals India and Pakistan will take place on October 15 in the same potentially tense location, after the hosts’ campaign opener against Australia a week earlier.

Due to Pakistan’s prior rejection to visit India, the schedule wasn’t released for several weeks. However, a solution was made when Pakistan agreed to host a hybrid-style Asia Cup in September.

According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), their side would need permission from Islamabad to compete.

Sami Ul Hasan, the director of communications at PCB, said, “We are coordinating with our government for direction.

This stance is in line with what we informed the ICC when they shared the draught timetable with us and asked for our input a few weeks ago, he said.
Pakistan, which has a majority of Muslims, is concerned about Ahmedabad, the city where India’s Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi was born. Pakistan has previously voiced reluctance to play in the 132,000-seat stadium.

At least 1,000 people, predominantly Muslims, died in sectarian violence in Ahmedabad in 2002, which was the epicentre of fatal religious rioting and shocked the whole globe.

Due to security concerns, the match during Pakistan’s previous T20 World Cup cricket tour of India was moved from Dharamsala to Kolkata.

The top four teams from the 10-team round-robin round will advance to the semi-finals, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement 100 days before the competition starts. The 48-match tournament will be contested at 10 locations over 46 days.

The World Cup Super League has already produced eight clubs that have qualified. At the conclusion of the current qualifying round in Zimbabwe, the remaining two seats will be filled.

Playing at the World Cup at home would be a fantastic experience, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma said. “India won here 12 years ago, and I know supporters across the country are eagerly awaiting our arrival on the pitch this time.”

Due to long-standing political difficulties, India and Pakistan only play cricket against one other in international events, generally at neutral grounds, most notably last year during the T20 World Cup in Australia.

As a result, each game between the South Asian neighbors ranks among the most popular athletic events on the world stage, and any victory is exploited to bolster nationalism at home.

273 million people watched the India vs. Pakistan 50-over World Cup match in 2019.

Since 2012, India and Pakistan have not played one another in a bilateral series on either nation’s territory.

Additionally, they haven’t faced off in a Test match since 2007, instead just competing in the shorter games.

Deep cultural and linguistic ties exist between India and Pakistan, but their past is marred by murder and tragedy.

Three wars have been fought between the two nuclear-armed countries since the subcontinent was divided in 1947.

India last took home the ODI World Cup trophy in 2011. Since then, in 2015 and 2019, respectively, Australia and England have won the championship in their own backyards.

On October 29 in Lucknow, India will play England, while on November 4 in Ahmedabad, the English will play Australia.

The semifinal and championship games will be place on reserve days, and all three will be day-night affairs.

India And Pakistan Agree To Play Their World Cup Encounter In Ahmedabad

India And Pakistan Agree To Play Their World Cup Encounter In Ahmedabad

June 11, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


Pakistan first had worries about performing in Ahmedabad for security grounds. The location of the World Cup match between India and Pakistan has been decided, according to an agreement between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Pakistan has finally accepted to take on India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, India, according to a report from Dainik Jagran.

Pakistan had first raised security-related reservations about playing in Ahmedabad. However, a solution has been achieved following discussions and negotiations between the BCCI and PCB. Following the BCCI’s decision to approve the PCB’s suggested hybrid concept for the Asia Cup, this choice was made.

The first four games of the tournament’s group stage will be played in Lahore, Pakistan, in accordance with the hybrid concept put out by the PCB. The following round, which will include games involving India and the championship, will take place in Sri Lanka. This agreement allays Pakistan’s security worries while allowing both nations to hold games.

If their hybrid concept was rejected, the PCB had threatened to boycott the Asia Cup and then the ODI World Cup in India.

In order to allay these worries, representatives from the International Cricket Council (ICC), including Chairman Greg Barclay and CEO Geoff Allardice, travelled to Lahore and met with PCB representatives in order to get a commitment that the Pakistan squad will go to India for the 2023 World Cup.

The BCCI chose to accept the PCB’s suggested hybrid approach and conduct the World Cup match between India and Pakistan in Ahmedabad in light of this promise. This match is crucial since it will pit the two bitter rivals against one another on Indian soil for the first time since 2016.

The expectation of a sizable number of foreign spectators travelling to India for the tournament led the BCCI to decide to hold this intense match in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. The Narendra Modi venue is the largest cricket venue in the nation, with space for up to 100,000 spectators.

The report also stated that Chennai and Hyderabad will host the majority of Pakistan’s World Cup games.

The World Cup schedule has already been provided by the BCCI to the ICC, and it is anticipated to be made public by Wednesday. The high-profile encounter between India and Pakistan, which is expected to be an exciting match showing the great rivalry between the two cricketing nations, is highly anticipated by cricket fans across the world.

BCB Adopts A Definite Position On The 2023 Asia Cup

BCB Adopts A Definite Position On The 2023 Asia Cup

May 30, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


The Asian Cricket Council (ACC)’s decision about the 2019 Asia Cup will be supported by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

It should be mentioned that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has refused to send its team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup and is adamant that the competition take place in a neutral location.

However, the PCB has no interest in organizing the tournament outside of Pakistan since doing so would undermine its attempts to bring back international cricket to the nation.

Pakistan Will Host The Occasion

The hybrid plan, put up by the PCB, which saw four of the group stage matches played in Pakistan and the rest of the competition taking place at a neutral site, is also not expected to be approved by the BCCI.

Due to the intense heat, the BCB has previously raised concerns about the UAE being one of the neutral locations.

“We would like to participate in the Asia Cup. We are interested in the competition regardless of the model it is held in. We would have to play there if the ACC says the event will be held in Dubai and the other members concur, BCB Cricket Operations Chairman Jalal Yunus told the local media on Monday.

Since we are concentrating on the World Cup, there is discomfort. We declined to play in Dubai because we were considering our preparations. We are awaiting the ACC’s judgement,” he continued.

Najam Sethi, the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, had urged a logical strategy to resolve the situation, which affects both the country’s participation in this year’s ODI World Cup and the successful hosting of the Asia Cup.

Sethi stated that the likelihood of the Pakistani squad visiting India for the ODI World Cup is slim while speaking to the media on the occasion of the meeting of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).

“In the event that India declines to visit Pakistan to compete in the Asia Cup, there is a potential that the Pakistani authorities won’t permit the Men in Green to cross the border to participate in the World Cup. The ultimate loser in such scenario will be cricket, according to Sethi.

“There should be a compromise to resolve issues that unquestionably jeopardies the successful holding of ICC and ACC events. The government would not let us to travel to India to participate in World Cup matches if India refuses to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, he said.

Before Approving A Hybrid Concept For The World Cup, BCCI Requests Confirmation From PCB

Before Approving A Hybrid Concept For The World Cup, BCCI Requests Confirmation From PCB

May 21, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


The planned dates for the Asia Cup are September 2 through September 16.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has often argued that the whole Asia Cup should take place in a neutral location and has rejected the concept of sending their team to Pakistan for this year’s competition.

PCB, on the other hand, is determined about holding the tournament in their area, if not the entirety of it. Najam Sethi, the chairman of the PCB management committee, proposed a hybrid plan to achieve this, according to which Pakistan would host the first four games in the tournament’s group stage. Additionally, the finals and matches involving India will be played in a neutral site during the next round.

In the event that the BCCI does not ultimately approve the hybrid format, the PCB president has openly threatened to withdraw from the Asia Cup in 2023.

The standoff appears to be ending, according to sources in the PCB. BCCI and ACC members have advised board authorities that they are open to accepting the new hybrid model put out by PCB.

In exchange, PCB must guarantee BCCI that they would send a side to India for the 2023 World Cup. Although PCB has not yet responded in this respect, a favorable reaction is not ruled out.

The PCB officials were expecting for an email from the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), despite Saturday being a holiday, but it never came.

The ODI World Cup is scheduled to be contested this year, and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has convened a Special General Meeting (SGM) for May 27 in Ahmedabad to supervise it. In this meeting, the aforementioned hybrid model may be authorized. On that day, the World Cup schedule is also anticipated to be revealed.

Before the aforementioned meeting, BCCI would like assurance from PCB on their participation in the World Cup. The head of the PCB has also voiced opposition to hosting the India-Pakistan game in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Once the impasse is broken, the high-profile matchup between the bitter adversaries will be held somewhere else.

UAE is also interested to host the Asia Cup’s second round. The Emirates Cricket Board has recommended that games begin around 4:30 PM in order to escape the heat.

It should be mentioned that the proposed dates for the Asia Cup are September 2 through September 16.

The Australian Hotel Apology & Dismisses The Staff Members Who Videotaped Virat Kohli’s Room

The Australian Hotel Apology & Dismisses The Staff Members Who Videotaped Virat Kohli’s Room

November 2, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


Perth’s Crown Towers said they are looking into it to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

The Crown Towers Perth hotel in Australia, where the Indian cricket team was staying for their T20 World Cup matches, released a statement after one of its staff members breached Virat Kohli’s privacy and recorded him in his hotel room.

The hotel expressed regret and removed the offenders from the property, vowing to prevent a similar incident from happening again.

Kohli expressed his displeasure at the breach of his privacy in a video dubbed “King Kohli’s Hotel Room” that was posted on his Instagram on Monday. According to a copy of the statement made available to The Indian Express, the hotel apologized the same day.

It said, “We sincerely apologies to the offended visitor and will keep taking the appropriate efforts to ensure this stays an isolated incidence. “Crown took swift action to address the problem. The parties involved were expelled from the Crown account and stepped down, and the original video was quickly taken down from social media.

The hotel management stated that an inquiry is being performed with the outside contractor and that they would take whatever further measures are required to guarantee that a similar situation does not occur again. In order to express our regrets, we are also engaging with the Indian Cricket Team and the International Cricket Council. We will keep collaborating with them as the inquiry moves forward, they said.

In a statement on the subject, the ICC expressed its “extreme disappointment” at Kohli’s “gross infringement of privacy.” To make sure that this is an isolated incident and that player privacy is always protected, we continue to engage with event hotels and security suppliers.

The trespassers panned the camera over Kohli’s shoes and other possessions in the room in the footage. Even while Kohli enjoys when fans are thrilled and anxious to see him, he did not enjoy this level of devotion, claiming he was worried about his privacy at the time.

He said, “Where can I truly expect any personal space at all if I can’t have privacy in my own hotel room?”
