The International Cricket Council (ICC) executives are reportedly in Pakistan to negotiate and secure the nation’s participation in the 2019 World Cup. Due to security concerns, Pakistan’s participation in the much-awaited competition has been in doubt.

To secure the players’ safety and the event’s successful hosting in their nation, the Pakistani government and cricket board have been working nonstop.

India’s refusal to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup in September and their request that the entire competition be hosted in a neutral nation has caused the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to respond tit-for-tat.

“That’s something that’s obviously ongoing at the moment” – ICC General Manager Wasim Khan

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Greg Barclay and CEO Geoff Allardice were scheduled to arrive in Lahore on Tuesday for a two-day visit, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). They are in Pakistan to meet with top cricket officials, including Sethi, to talk about the sport’s continuous development. This visit is significant because it shows how committed the ICC is to Pakistan cricket and how much the country has improved in terms of security.

“That’s something that’s obviously ongoing at the moment,” ICC General Manager Wasim Khan told a virtual press conference on Monday when asked about Pakistan’s participation in the World Cup.

“Geoff Allardice, our CEO, and Greg are in Pakistan at the moment discussing a number of areas with the PCB hierarchy. But that’s certainly up to the two countries and the hierarchy within the ICC to discuss them and come to some conclusions,” added former PCB CEO Khan.
