Karachi: Jan 15, 2013

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sought renewed security measures for its women’s team when it participates in the ICC World Cup in Mumbai from January 25.

The PCB on Tuesday wrote a letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) asking it to shift matches of the Pakistan team to some other venue if the cricket’s governing body feels that the step is necessary in view of security issues.

“Naturally, we are concerned with the security of our players after the unfortunate incident involving our hockey players in Mumbai,” PCB official Nadeem Sarwar told PTI.

“We have written to the ICC and requested them to review all the security arrangements for our players for the World Cup. We just want to be sure about the safety of our players when they play in the World Cup. This (relocate matches of the Pakistan team) is entirely up to the ICC and organisers but we have given them this option,” Sarwar added.

The simmering tension on the Indo-Pak border today spilled over to the sporting arena with a rattled Hockey India deciding to send back all the nine Pakistani players taking part in its high-profile league following protests over the killing of Indian soldiers.

After protests by Shiv Sena and other right-wing organisations disrupted the Mumbai Magicians training and the first match of the league, Hockey India took the decision to send back the Pakistani players.

HI had initially decided to send back the Pakistani players of Mumbai franchise only but fearing that the league could be affected by disruptions, it took the decision to send back all the players.

The league ran into rough weather after the killing of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan Army on January 8 in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
