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

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.

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.
