Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee Chairman, Zaka Ashraf, is set to travel to India to witness the much-awaited clash between Pakistan and India. The high-octane clash will be contested at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, on Saturday, October 14. After it was established that the media personnel had been given permission to submit their passports for an Indian visa to cover the ODI World Cup 2023, Ashraf made the decision to visit the neighbouring country. Notably, 60 journalists are expected to witness and cover the epic high-octane clash.

The chairman expressed his joy that his conversation with the foreign office had contributed to a successful result regarding the visa delay. Besides, the PCB chief is happy with how the Men in Green have fared in the ongoing World Cup so far. Speaking of the World Cup campaign, Pakistan have won back-to-back games which have given high hopes to the fans and Ashraf alike.

“I have delayed my travel to India, and I am travelling tomorrow after receiving confirmation that Pakistan’s journalists have been asked to submit their passports to obtain visas to cover the mega event. I am happy that my conversation with the foreign office helped in achieving a positive development regarding the visa delay,” Ashraf was quoted as saying in a release by PCB.
