New Delhi: Ministry of External Affairs has defended the government’s decision to grant visa to former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad to travel to India for the third ODI scheduled for 6th January.

The government says that Miandad has been given visa as he is not on the prohibited list and also because he is a top Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official.

Shive Sena had questioned the decision demanding immediate cancellation of the visa.

Miandad`s son Junaid is married to Mahrukh, the daughter of Dawood, who is wanted in India in connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case. India has been asking Pakistan to extradite Dawood, whose name also figures in the US’ most wanted list in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
