Quoting visa issues, Pakistan has pulled out of the Asian Squash Championship, scheduled to begin here on Wednesday.

Four players from Pakistan were to play in the continental championship but delay in issuing visas led to the withdrawal, reports in the Pakistani media said.

“It is regretted to inform you that Pakistan Squash Federation has been forced to withdraw its squash contingent from participation in 19th Asian Senior Squash Championship, 2017 scheduled to be held in Chennai India between 26-30 April,” Geo TV quoted a statement from Pakistan Squash Federation.

Earlier at a press meet in Chennai, the championship director Cyrus Poncha had said, “We have not received any email message so far on this.”
