When will both the teams face to face on the cricket field. It is difficult to say about it now, but the good news for sports lovers is that Pakistan team will come to India twice in the next 3 months.

According to the news of the Indian Express, last week, Pakistan Hockey Federation General Secretary Haider Hussain had written a letter to the sports board of his country, demanding NOC to travel to India. Hussain had said in the video message that the Pakistan team would definitely travel to Chennai. Football and hockey federation officials say they are bound by the rules of FIFA and the International Olympic Committee. Which does not allow any country to discriminate.
India was shocked
About 4 years ago, the International Olympic Committee suspended India’s rights to host global events. In fact, the government did not give visas to Pakistani shooters to participate in the World Cup in New Delhi. Talking about cricket, it is not included in the Olympics. Cricket is also not bound by the rules of the International Olympic Committee.
