CLT20: India refuse visas to Faisalabad Wolves
Faisalabad Wolves could miss the upcoming Champions League Twenty20 after India refused to issue visas to Pakistani team.
“As a matter of abundance, precaution and caution in terms of safety and security, the government did not give green signal for the cricket team’s visit,” a government source was quoted as saying by PTI yesterday.
Faisalabad Wolves, led by Misbah-ul-Haq, was invited to play in the qualifying rounds, starting on September 17.
The Faisalabad team’s participation in the CLT20 was confirmed until tensions flared between the neighbours due to ceasefire violations.
Pakistani team Sialkot Stallions participated in last year’s CLT20 which was held in South Africa.
