The International Cricket Council (ICC) has sought a written guarantee from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over Pakistan’s participation in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel Wednesday.
The ICC Men's T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in India in October this year.
The ICC has asked India to provide a written guarantee that visas will be provided to the Pakistani squad which will be touring the country.
The ICC has also sought a guarantee from India for providing fool-proof security to Pakistan team during the event. The matter was brought to the ICC's attention after the PCB raised the issue during a meeting of the international cricket body.
The ICC told the BCCI that if Pakistani players were not issued the visas, then the future of the tournament would be in disarray. The council also called upon India to make sure that the event is tax-free.
Pakistan also have an option to take a stay order to stop the event.
