Meanwhile, the Pakistani team got their visas cleared on Monday, which is less than 48 hours before they are scheduled to fly for Hyderabad, where they will contest their two warm-up games, against New Zealand and Australia.
The approval came on Monday, soon after the PCB had written to the ICC expressing its displeasure at the delay in the issuance of the visas by the Indian government. It has been learned that this delay had forced the Pakistani unit to cancel their two-day camp and bonding trip in Dubai.
“The PCB has also raised the question of whether the inability to provide visas in time for the squad to travel constitutes a breach of the hosting agreement of the World Cup,” ESPNcricinfo reported.
