The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has asked PCB to guarantee if they won’t make any terror attack when they come to India for the World Cups 2021 and 2023.
BCCI asks for no terror attack by Pakistan after PCB appeals ICC to guarantee Pakistanis to play ICC events at India
“Can the PCB give assurance in writing that the Pakistan government would ensure that no illegal incursions into India take place from the Pakistani side or that there’s no violation of the cease-fire or that no act of terror takes place on Indian soil originating in Pakistan or that no repeat of Pulwama type incident takes place?” the official was quoted as saying in Cricket Next.
“The ICC mandates that there should be no interference of governments in the administration of the game and the corollary would be that a sports board doesn’t attempt to interfere with how a government functions.
“It’s time the PCB realizes that and stops acting like an agent for an individual in the ICC who is known to work against the interest of India. All I would say is that India is a wonderful country and acts in the most balanced way,” the official added.
Earlier, Wasim Khan, the CEO of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to guarantee them for visas and tickets to play upcoming ICC events in India.
India is to hold ICC World Cup 2021 and 2023 hence, Wasim concerns the political relations of both countries and wants a guarantee if Men in Green can visit there for playing.
“We are also looking at the fact that the ICC World Cups are to be hosted in India in 2021 and 2023 and we have already asked the ICC to give us written assurances from BCCI that we will not face any problems getting visas and clearance to play in India,” Wasim said.
“That is why we have asked for the advance assurances. But eventually, it is an ICC event and it is their responsibility to ensure we as a full member and signatory of the participant’s agreement go and play in these ICC events.”
