News revolving India Vs Pakistan World Twenty 20 Match 2016:
There is lot of rounds of news circling around regarding the safety and security measures taken by our country as hosts for the Pakistan players. There was a news that Pakistan cricket board was unhappy with our arrangement of security for the match to be held on 19th March 2016. First the news was that Pakistan team might not take part in the ICC World Twenty 20 because of the security reasons.
Once the air about Pakistan team coming to India got cleared, the other issue was the city hosting the India Vs Pakistan T20 Match. Dharamshala was the host for the India Vs Pakistan World Cup Twenty20 Match but because of security reasons, the match is now being held in Kolkata’s Eden gardens. Dharamshala as a city has faced lot of economic losses as all the hotel bookings were made in advance by the people to watch the match. The last minute cancellations have not proved good for the city for the economic factor.
But the strange thing is the Pakistan cricket players are not scared to play in India as the hype was all about. Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi brushed off concerns over security for his team at the World T20 2016, saying he was looking forward to playing in front of India’s raucous crowds.The 36-year-old said his team had always been “physically and mentally” prepared for the tournament despite weeks of uncertainty over whether they would be allowed to travel to arch rivals India, hosts of the World T20.
“We are cricketers and not politicians,” Afridi told a press conference in Kolkata.
“We have always enjoyed playing in India and have been loved by Indians crowds more than crowds back home in Pakistan. Cricket has always brought people together and I think politics should be kept away from cricket.”- Shahid Afridi in interview in Kolkata
