Pakistan made a request to International Cricket Council to strip India from the hosting rights of upcoming ICC events.
Pakistan requested ICC to take hosting rights from India for T20 World Cup 2021 and ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. However, it is in case if India does not give assurance to PCB or Pakistan Cricket Board regarding the issuance of visa.
PCB told ICC that until and unless India assures them in writing that they will issue visas to their players and officials, their hosting rights should be taken back from them.
Further, ICC asked BCCI or Board of Control for Cricket in India that they need to assure that they will issue visas to Pakistan players for ICC tournaments in India. ICC also ordered BCCI to take written guarantee from their government, a year in advance before the tournaments kick-off in India or they will look to another venue to host the events.
PCB chairman Ehsan Mani raised the issue at a recent ICC meeting in Dubai, where he pointed out that India recently denied visas to Pakistani athletes to participate in events held in India.
