As was expected Pakistan has decided to send its cricket team to India to play in the cricket world cup 2023.

Allowing Pakistani team to participate in the cricket world cup 2023 was confirmed by a statement by the Foreign Office on Sunday.

“Pakistan has consistently maintained that sports should not be mixed with politics. It has, therefore, decided to send its Cricket Team to India to participate in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023,” stated the statement by the foreign office.

It further added that Pakistan believes that the state of bilateral relations with India should not stand in the way of fulfilling its international sports-related obligations.

It also maintained that Pakistan’s approach to the matter was ‘constructive and responsible’ in contrast to India which had refused to send its team across the border for the Asia Cup.

Meanwhile according to the foreign office statement, Pakistan’s security concerns are still in place.

“We are conveying these concerns to the International Cricket Council and the Indian authorities. We expect that full safety and security of Pakistan Cricket Team will be ensured during its visit to India,” it added.

The mega show of the cricket, the world cup 2023 is set to begin in India on October 5. As per schedule of it Pakistan and India will play a match against each other on October 14.

This is pertinent to mention here that in the past, it has been the precedent that Pakistani authorities first show concerns to send its team to India to participate in the tournament which was scheduled to be played in India and later on after creating media hype, it generally have been giving consent to send the team to the arch rival.

This time too, first reluctance was shown by the Pakistani authorities and later on it has allowed the cricket team to play in the forthcoming cricket world cup.
