Pakistan cricket has pulled out of the Asia Cup for the blind cricketers, which was to be held in India in January next year. The reason explained is that they are not sure of the security their players will be getting over here.
Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board was not happy with the way the Shiv Sena activists stormed into the BCCI office, not allowing the BCCI and PCB officials to carry over a meeting over the Indo-Pak cricket series. This was not the first time Shiv Sena had done something wrong for the game. Infact, the last time they did something right was when Pakistan defeated India in the World Cup ( Sarcasm intended).
Syed Sultan Shah, who is the hairman of the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council and president of the World Blind Cricket Council, has said that this decision has come after the recent incidents as well the relations in the recent past.
Following the attack of Shiv Sena, Pakistani commentators as well as umpire, who were a part of the ongoing India vs South Africa series have returned back to Pakistan. Yesterday, PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan showed his disappointment over the fact that BCCI didn’t agree over a bilateral series in December this year.
It will be interesting to see if PCB boycotts the World T20, which is to be played in India next year.
