Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC)'s chairman Sultan Shah said India has not issued visas for the T20 Blind Cricket World Cup.
Earlier, Sultan Shah said: "We haven't received visas today. We submitted squad members' names a month ago and passports a week ago. But no response from India so far," he shared.
"World Blind Cricket Council gave the hosting rights to India on the condition of making sure all countries' participation. I hope the Indian government gives permission by tomorrow," he added.
