    India refuses visa to a Pak team for Champions League Twenty20

    NEW DELHI: India has refused visa to Pakistani team, Faisalabad Wolves, to participate in Champions League Twenty20 tournament scheduled to begin from September 17 in view of abundance precaution.

    The government's decision not to give visas to the Pakistani team to participate in the limited over cricket tournament comes in the backdrop of recent ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LOC) creating tension between the two countries.

    "As a matter of abundance precaution and caution in terms of safety and security, the government did not give green signal for the cricket team's visit," government sources said.

    The Faisalabad team, led by national team skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, was invited to play in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League T20 in India, starting on September 17.

    The Faisalabad team's participation in the CLT20 was confirmed until the LoC issues arose and that led to tensions between the two countries.

    Last year, the BCCI had invited Pakistan to send its domestic T20 champions -- Sialkot Stallions -- for the Champions League which was held in South Africa.

    The Sialkot Stallions, however, failed to qualify for the main round.

    This year Faisalabad Wolves, by virtue of emerging as the national T20 champions, had earned the honour of representing Pakistan in the Champions League.

    Last month, India had not granted visa to a Pakistani religious group to attend Urs here and suggested that they defer their visit in view of their safety and security.

    I think that was the stance after mumbai attacks, but it seems they changed it later. Why don't they stick with their decision to not give visas to pakistan until they put hafeed saed behind bars, and stop this drama of lifting and lowering once and for all..

    As politicians make the game as a goodwill for both nations, it is sure it is gonna be affected when there is a mistrust between both. I prefer politicians should be banned from commenting about the game.
