However, Pakistan's participation in the World Blind T20 is doubtful due to current tense situation between Pakistan and India.
Talking to APP, a PBCC official said the participation of the national team in the World Blind T20 depends on the permission from our government.
“If the situation remains tense then our participation in the event depends on the green signal from the government,” he said. "But at our end we are fully prepared for the mega event," he added.
