The Blind T20 World Cup 2022 failed to kick-start in India on December 5th as it faces delay since one of the participants, Pakistan, are yet to reach India to take part in the event. It is due to India's over-involvement in politics as they have denied issuing visas to Pakistani players.
Pakistani cricketers were all set to fly for the event on December 4th. however, getting no visas from Indian agencies, their participation in the Blind T20 World Cup 2022 is cancelled. Notably, the Indian High Commissioner has not even returned the passport of the men in green.
Pakistan's first encounter is scheduled to take place on December 7th against South Africa. Nevertheless, it won't take place due to India's egoistic approach toward Pakistanis and will be delayed until the men in green reach India. They were all set to lock horns with arch-rivals India on the next day.
As far as the participants are concerned, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, Bangladesh and Nepal are all set to don the country's jerseys in the event.
According to Pakistan Blind Cricket Association's chairman, Sultan Shah,
"We didn't receive visas because India's foreign ministry didn't issue NOC,"
"Our team is in Lahore, waiting for visas. If we get permission to travel today, all the matches will be rescheduled,"
