Pakistan blind cricket team can take part in the ongoing Blind Cricket World Cup in India after the Union home ministry's visa clearance to 34 players and officials of the neighbouring country.

After its nod, the Ministry of External Affairs will issue the Visas to the Pakistani players and officials so that they can travel to India for the December 5-17 tournament.

The home ministry has given clearance for the issuance of visas to 34 Pakistani players and officials to take part in the Blind Cricket World Cup, a ministry

official said.

Earlier in the day, the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) had claimed in a statement that its team could not get clearance from the Ministry of External Affairs in India.

“This unfortunate incident has left the Pakistan blind cricket team in the lurch,” the PBCC had said in a statement.

The PBCC said "it strongly condemns this discriminating act of India as sports should be above regional politics".

Pakistan finished second in the last T20 World Cup for the Blind.
