Earlier also we have hosted many World Cups and international matches and I dont think any country should feel insecure here,” Thakur had said when asked about Pakistans security worries. The PCB had initially hinted that Pakistan might withdraw from the upcoming event if the Pakistan government did not permit them to tour India. There were also reports that the PCB was also under pressure because of the ICCs threat of legal action in case of a withdrawal from the event. The matches of the tournament will be spread over seven Indian cities and Pakistan will play their league matches in Kolkata, Dharamsala and Mohali. PTI Cor PM PMlast_img
