Pakistan likely to be restricted to single T20 World Cup venue in India


Pakistan cricket team is most likely to play all of their group stage matches in T20 World Cup at a single venue in India.

After Indian government assured issuing visas to the Pakistani team and journalists in T20 World Cup, reports now claim that the green shirts will be restricted to a single venue due to security concerns. Kolkata is most likely to host Pakistan during the mega event.
