Panel led by Bilawal Bhutto will make a decision on Pakistan's participation in the ODI World Cup 2023 in India

Panel led by Bilawal Bhutto will make a decision on Pakistan’s participation in the ODI World Cup in India. “The World Cup participation will be decided at a high-level meeting,” a top PCB official informed Cricbuzz on Tuesday. However, no further information was provided. According to the same article, the Bilawal Bhutto-led committee includes Sports Minister Ahsan Mazari, Maryam Aurangzeb, Asad Mahmood, Amin ul Haq, Qamar Zaman Kaira, and former diplomat Tariq Fatmi.

It’s worth noting that the India vs. Pakistan ODI World Cup 2023 match was initially scheduled on October 15 in Ahmedabad. However, security agencies advised the BCCI to reschedule the match to avoid clashing with the start of Navaratri, which is celebrated with zeal in the state of Gujarat.

Following that, the ICC and BCCI are close to negotiating a revised schedule, with the India vs. Pakistan match now scheduled for October 14. Pakistan’s schedule may also change, with their game against Sri Lanka currently scheduled for October 10 instead of the previously proposed October 12.

ICC might release the new schedule, which includes alterations to the schedules of a few other teams, anytime soon.

A panel led by Bilawal Bhutto will make a decision on Pakistan’s participation in the ODI World Cup in India, according to reports.

The 14-member committee includes the foreign minister, the interior minister, the law minister, the Inter-Provincial Coordination minister, the information and broadcasting minister, the adviser on Kashmir affairs, the adviser on establishment, the foreign secretary, PSPM, and representatives from secret agencies and other sensitive departments.

“The committee is expected to recommend sending a high-level security delegation to India to visit all of the venues where the Pakistan team is scheduled to play World Cup matches and review all security and other arrangements,” a source close to the committee said.

According to the source, there was no issue in principle to Pakistan playing in India, but the committee needed assurances that the players, officials, spectators, and media would not suffer any difficulties. Pakistan last visited India in 2016 for the World T20 Cup.
