ICC rejects Pakistan’s request to reschedule venues for ODI World Cup in India
All of the objections raised by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on the schedule and venues for the national team in the ODI World Cup in India have been rejected by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
In the final schedule of the World Cup released today by the ICC and BCCI, Pakistan’s match against India is scheduled in Ahmedabad as proposed in the draft earlier. However, PCB’s request to switch venues for the matches against Afghanistan and Australia have been ignored.
As per wishes of the Pakistan team management, the PCB had asked ICC and BCCI to reschedule its match against Afghanistan from Chennai to Bengaluru and the game against Australia from Bengaluru to Chennai.
But none of Pakistan’s objections or requests have been paid heed to.
Pakistan last played in India in 2016 in the T20 World Cup.
