PCB seeks written guarantee from the ICC for the players’ visas.

KARACHI: India faces three major problems in hosting the highly-anticipated 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani said Sunday. PCB seeks written guarantee from the ICC for the players’ visas ahead of the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup scheduled to be held in India.

Speaking at a press conference flanked by PCB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan and National High Performance Centre (NHPC) Director Nadeem Khan, Mani said the three problems India faces include the Pakistani visas, tax exemption, and the coronavirus pandemic.

The PCB boss stressed that if the T20 World Cup was to be held in India, then it would have to extend full cooperation — such as visas and full security to Pakistan. If, however, it was unable to do so, then the event should be moved to another venue, he stated.

He said the PCB has sought a written guarantee from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the players’ visas ahead of the event to be held in India.
