Just In: The Blind Cricket World will commence on December 5 and run through December 17 in India. However, the Pakistani Blind Cricket Team’s participation is suspicious because the Indian government refused to grant visas to them.

According to media reports, the third edition of the Blind World Cup will begin today with the opening ceremony in Delhi. Unfortunately, the Indian High Commission has failed to return the National Cricketer’s passports.

The marquee cricketing event was supposed to be played between seven international teams, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Australia, Nepal, South Africa, and Sri Lanka; however, Pakistan’s participation is now impossible due to visa issues.

It is pertinent to mention that the Chairman of Pakistan Blind Cricket Council was hopeful of receiving visas till last week, saying, “World Blind Cricket Council gave the hosting rights to India on the conditions of making sure all countries participation.”

Green Caps, regarded as tournament favorites, were scheduled to play their opening game in the world cup against South Africa on December 7, while their next match was fixed arch-rivals India on December 8.
