The members of the Lahore Lions team have finally been issued Indian Visa . A lot of confusion surrounded the team and it’s chances on whether they will be playing in the Champions league later this month. All the confusions have now ended with the team members receiving Indian Visa.

Lahore Lions is Pakistan’s domestic team which will feature in the Champions league , which will start from the 15th of this month. Lahore Lions won the domestic T20 tournament in Pakistan  and thus got an entry into this tournament.  They have a quality side , being captained by Mohammad Hafeez and includes the likes of Akmal brothers and Ahmad Shehzad . 

The team will leave Pakistan on the morning of 9th September and will start their campaign against Mumbai Indians in the qualifiers on 13th of September. After that they will take on  Sri Lanka’s Southers districts and New Zealand’s Northern Districts.

A lot of tension arose between India and Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai blast , due to which the cricketing relationships between the two country also suffered . At that time, India and pakistan were due to play a bilateral series almost every year since then the bilateral series have been very less.

Also after the attack on Sri lankan team in Pakistan, the International cricket is yet to return to Pakistan. UAE has been the home ground for pakistan cricket since then. Even with the PCB trying so hard for it, they have still not been successful to bring the International cricket to Pakistan.

The Pakistan players also suffered financial losses , after they the bomb blast in Mumbai. They are yet to feature in the IPL since then. They were among the stars in the first edition of the IPL in India but after that they have not been a part of any IPL s far.
