The BCCI is purportedly not content with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) administrator Ehsan Mani’s interest for a visa affirmation in front of the current year’s T20 World Cup. In front of the marquee occasion in India, Ehsan Mani has requested a confirmation from the BCCI that the Pakistan players as well as the writers just as fans would get visa.
The present reciprocal connection among India and Pakistan are at a record-breaking low and its effect has been tremendous on cricket. The main adversaries have not played a full-respective arrangement since 2007. The last respective arrangement between them occurred in 2012 when Pakistan visited India for a short restricted overs visit. From that point forward, India and Pakistan have just met in ICC competitions and Asia Cup.
Given the helpless relations between the two countries, Mani expressed that PCB needed affirmation from the BCCI. Addressing the columnists a month ago, Ehsan Mani said the PCB had told the ICC they required the affirmation from India before the finish of March or they would push for setting moving.
“We are not seeking written assurance for the visas of the national team only, but for the fans, officials and journalists as well. We have told the ICC that India should give written assurances by the end of March so that we know where we stand or we will push for the relocation of the World Cup from India to UAE,” quoted by Mani to reporters.
BCCI gave shutting reply to PCB Board.
“It was surprising to read Ehsan Mani’s comments, especially in the background of the wonderful working relationship that he shares with Sourav Ganguly (BCCI President) at the ICC. He is a gentleman and had in fact been a guide for Sourav during the pandemic along with Shashank (Manohar). One can’t help but think that it is very immature of Mani to give a statement like this,” said by Officials.
“It is almost as if he is either desperately looking for a way out of his team playing in the tournament or he is grandstanding for some constituency back home. If they want to make it a political issue, it is of course their own wish. They do know that a cricket board of a country has absolutely no locus stand to give any assurance on an issue, which is not in their purview and is firmly in the decision-making sphere of the government,” added by the officials of BCCI.
