New Delhi :
The Pakistan government has given the go ahead to the national cricket team to fly to India for the ICC World T20. The decision came after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif gave the final approval for the mega event.
The decision was taken after Interior minister, Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) senior officer meet Najam Sethi in Lahore.
After days of uncertainty and statements and counter statements the decision to send the team came after getting direct assurances from the Indian government for providing top security to the Pakistani players, officials, media personnel and fans who visit the country.
The positive development came after Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said earlier today that Pakistan team would be given full security and that the World T20 would be held smoothly and teams should travel to India without any security concerns.
Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee also tweeted and sent a message to the Pakistan Cricket Board that top security would be provided to the visiting team in Kolkata.
