After this statement, Pakistan government barred the team from visiting India. They requested ICC to shift the in any other cities of India.
ICC finally shifted the match at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Kolkata police chief Rajib Kumar sent a written a letter to Pakistan government and they are satisfied with the assurance and sent Pakistan team.
Pakistan’s players boarded on the Kolkata-bound flight and could not hide their happiness. Afridi revealed that Imran Khan and Wasim Akram will motivate them before the India match on March 19.
Afridi however, after landing in India was influenced by emotions and said, “India mien humne humesha cricket enjoy kia,yahan ke logon se humein bahut pyar mila,itna pyar humein Pak mein bhi ni mila jitna yahan.” (We always enjoy cricket in India. We receive love from Indians fans. It seems Indian fans love us more than the Pakistanis.”

Pakistan and India share a tense diplomatic relation. Recently Indian cricket body BCCI was not given any approval to play against bilateral series in 2015. And Pakistan players were also not allowed in Indian Premier League since the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack. After this deadly terrorist attack, not a single bilateral series was played between India and Pakistan.
