The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to get a written assurance from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that the side wouldn’t face any difficluty in getting the visas to play the two world cups in 2021 and 2023.

“We are looking at the ICC World Cups are to be hosted in India in 2021 and 2023. We have already asked the ICC to give us written assurances from BCCI that we will not face any problems getting visas,” PCB CEO Wasim Khan said in an interview on the Youtube Cricket Baaz Channel.

The ICC though is yet to decide upon the venue of 2021 World T20. As per the schedule, it is slated to take place in India but the COVID-19 outburst has left the 2020 edition of the tournament under some doubts.

The 2020 World T20 is so far scheduled to take place in Australia later this year.

Pakistan had earlier approached India for bilateral ties but the current strained relations between the two countries have forced the series to not take place anywhere in the near future.

Earlier, former Pakistan fast bowler said that a bilateral tie between the two countries might help to create raise funds in this difficult situation. Though, the right-arm seamer has faced the heat for this statement on social media.
