ICC World Twenty20, India vs Pakistan: ICC likely to announce final venue today

New Delhi: Fate of the high-profile clash between India and Pakistan of the ICC World T20, which is scheduled to take at Dharasala, still hangs in balance.

However, as per the media reports, International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to hold a meeting today around 5 PM, where the international body is expected to take a final call on the venue of the much-anticipated clash between the arch-rivals.

Security of Pakistan players is the major concern for ICC and Pakistan Cricket Board.

As per the sources in BCCI, Kolkata has the "highest" chance to host the match compared to other prospective venues like Mohali and Bengaluru.

India-Pakistan match, which is possibly the biggest game of the tournament, is scheduled to take place on March 19. 

On Tuesday night, the Pakistan Cricket Board had put its team departure to India on hold following security concerns for the marquee match originally scheduled to be played in Dharamsala.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shahryar Khan had said that conflicting signals originating from India over Dharamsala have forced them to seek a change in location for the mega battle.
