Indian blind cricketers to play in UAE instead of Pakistan

Indian blind cricketers to play in UAE instead of Pakistan

LAHORE: The Indian blind cricket team will play its World Cup fixtures in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after failing to secure permission to play in neighbouring Pakistan.

India was due to play Pakistan, in Faisalabad on Monday.

But due to tense relations between the nuclear-armed countries, Pakistan has arranged for India’s games to be played in Ajman and Sharjah in the UAE.

The fifth edition of the tournament starts on Sunday and ends on January 21, with Australia and the West Indies also to be based in UAE due to security concerns.
