Pakan not coming for T20 World Cup for Blind: CABI president Mahantesh GK

The Pakan cricket team for blind will not come to India to compete in the ongoing T20 World Cup as the players didn’t get their visas, Cricket Association for the Blind in India (CABI) president Mahantesh GK said on Wednesday.
“Pakan team is not coming to India, it is confirmed. They haven’t got their visas,” Mahantesh told PTI on Wednesday.
“Pakan Team has collected passports from Indian High Commission in Islamabad today (7th December 2022) around 2:30 PM after receiving the passport collection e-mail from Indian High Commission but no visa has been issued to Pakan team,” Pakan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) said in a statement.
The Minry of Home Affairs (MHA) had earlier given clearance to the Pakan’s visually challenged team but the visa clearance didn’t come on time from the Minry of External Affairs (MEA).
“The Minry of Home Affairs (MHA) has given clearance for the issuance of visas to 34 Pakani players and officials to participate in the ongoing Blind Cricket World Cup 2022 in India. MHA has cleared names of 34 players and officials of Pakan Blind cricket team for World Cup in India after scrutiny,” government sources had said.
