<p>A high-level committee led by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto has been established by Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to make decisions on the country’s cricket team’s participation in the ODI World Cup in India in 2023.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-62837″ src=”×422.jpg” alt=”” width=”1114″ height=”627″ srcset=”×422.jpg 750w,×576.jpg 1024w,×432.jpg 768w,×220.jpg 390w,×84.jpg 150w, 1280w” sizes=”(max-width: 1114px) 100vw, 1114px” /></p>
<p>Before making recommendations to Sharif, the committee would examine and debate all facets of ties between Pakistan and India, the government’s stance on keeping politics and sport apart, and the state of Indian athletes, officials, fans, and media.</p>
<p>The Pakistan Cricket Board has the Prime Minister as its principal sponsor.</p>
<p>The World Cup schedule has already been released by the International Cricket Council and the host BCCI, and Pakistan is anticipated to visit India for the first 50-over match on October 5.</p>
<p>However, because of the strained ties between the two nations, the PCB has informed them that the national team’s participation in the major tournament is subject to government approval.</p>
<p>Ahsan Mazari, the minister of sports, Maryam Aurangzeb, Asad Mahmood, Amin ul Haq, Qamar Zaman Kaira, and Tariq Fatmi, a former diplomat, are additional committee members.</p>
<p>A high-level security mission would be dispatched to India to check the stadiums where Pakistan’s matches are planned, the appropriate governments have already informed the PCB.</p>
<p>Zaka Ashraf, the interim chairman of the board, and Salman Taseer, the chief operating officer, are both scheduled to fly out to Durban on Saturday night to join the ICC meetings. Ashraf is anticipated to speak about India’s repeated refusals to send a team to Pakistan, citing security concerns.</p>
<p>The world’s biggest cricket stadium, located in Ahmedabad, will host the much anticipated World Cup match between India and Pakistan on October 15.</p>
<p>Before facing the Netherlands and Sri Lanka in their initial two World Cup games at the same location, Pakistan will play its two exhibition games in Hyderabad.</p>
<p>The squad will also play in Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Chennai.</p>
<p>Only in Asia Cup or ICC competitions do India and Pakistan face off against one another.</p>
