Difficult for Pakistan to play against India in troubling atmosphere: PCB chief
LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shahryar Khan has said that it would be difficult for the green shirts to play against India in their World Twenty20 (T20) match in a troubling atmosphere, ARY News reported.
PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan said that the cricket board has informed the International Cricket Council (ICC) about its reservations for the high-voltage Pak-India World T20 match on March 19, 2016 at Dharamshala.
Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh Virbhadra Singh voiced out his opposition of the high-voltage World Twenty20 (T20) clash between Pakistan and India and asked Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to cancel the match or shift the game to a different venue.
Khan said that ICC should ensure proper security for the match.
“I have informed the BCCI President Shashank Manohar about the reservations on the match in the telephonic conversation on Tuesday”, Shahryar said.
He added that the Himachal Pradesh government’s refusal for providing security to the Pakistani team cannot be undermined.
