Pakistan says won’t go to World T20 without security guarantee

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan said on Thursday its cricket team would not take part in the World Twenty20 tournament in India without a public guarantee from the host country over the safety of its players.The most anticipated match at the tournament between India and arch-rivals Pakistan was shifted to Kolkata on Wednesday over concerns about security at the original venue for the March 19 clash at Dharamsala.But Pakistani officials said that wasn’t enough.”Until on a government level we are … given a public guarantee (of safety), unfortunately we are not in a position to give the Pakistani team permission to go to India,” Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan told reporters.The International Cricket Council said on Wednesday it had been given assurances on security from all the Indian state authorities that are hosting matches.
