Is Pakistan mulling boycott of T20 International World Cup 2021?

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan is not mulling boycott of T20 International World Cup 2021, The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan has rejected the media reports.

Khan has dismissed reports claiming that Pakistan was contemplating the option of boycotting the 2021 Twenty20 World Cup, scheduled to take place in India, if the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to send its team to Pakistan for Asia Cup later this year.

While talking to The Hindu link, the PCB Chief Executive made it clear that there is no question of skipping an International Cricket Council (ICC) event.

“It’s absolutely incorrect. What I would like to say is that, we are concerned about security issues and also there could be issues in attaining visas.

But we are confident that things will ease out over the period of time,” Wasim was quoted as saying by The Hindu. “This has been completely taken out of context.

Even though we would still want to host the Asia Cup in Pakistan, the Asian Cricket Council needs to decide on what it will do about the matches involving India.”
