The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shaharyar Khan has said that the obscene behavior shown by the Pakistan Hockey Players’ after their win over India in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy last week, can have adverse effects on the cricketing ties between the two nations. 

The Indian Hockey Body wasn’t at all happy with over the top celebrations from Pakistan’s Hockey Players’ as such behavior is not tolerable in sports. But Khan expressed that Pakistan Cricket Board is trying hard that the relations between both the cricketing boards remain cordial. 

During an interview with Geo Super Channel, Khan was quoted in saying:

“Yes it could have adverse effects and it could affect any chances of our players being invited for the Indian Premier League. 

“What had happened left its negative impact but so far we have good relations with the Indian board. We are maintaining good relations with the Indian board even at the ICC level and we are looking forward to hosting India in the bilateral series next year in UAE.”

When asked about the delay in issuance of visa to Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez to fly to Chennai for his bowling action test, Khan said efforts were being made at the highest level to get the visa as soon as possible.

“There has been a delay but I have spoken to our High Commissioner in India and hopefully Hafeez will be able to proceed to Chennai soon. As soon as the visa comes we will send him because the bowling centre in Chennai is accredited by the ICC,” he said.
