World Cup 2023: Pakistan Cricket Team Faces Visa Issues

World Cup 2023: The Pakistani cricket team, led by Babar Azam, is set to arrive in India for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 later than expected. Initially, it was believed that the Pakistani team would reach India by September 25th. The team’s first warm-up match is scheduled against New Zealand on September 29th, with both teams set to face off in Hyderabad. However, it now appears nearly impossible for the Pakistani team to arrive on time due to visa-related issues faced by the players. Pakistani players have not received their visas yet.

What’s the BCCI’s Stance on This?

According to media reports, Pakistani fans are facing considerable inconvenience due to visa issues. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is actively working with the Ministry of External Affairs to resolve these issues promptly. It is believed that the visa-related problems will be resolved soon. Sources from the BCCI have stated that they are well aware of the situation and are confident that all issues will be resolved by Monday. It’s worth noting that the visa-related complications have arisen due to the weekend, causing a delay in the process.

Pakistan Football Team Faced Visa Issues Too

This isn’t the first time that visa-related problems have affected a Pakistani sports team’s visit to India. Recently, the Saif Cup was organized in India, and the Pakistani national football team was invited to participate. However, the team arrived late due to visa complications. Furthermore, it’s being reported that there are limited visas available for Pakistani fans planning to attend the upcoming World Cup in India. As a result, a significant number of Pakistani fans may not be able to make it to India for the event. The much-anticipated match between India and Pakistan in the World Cup is scheduled for October 14th at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
