Women’s Cricket World Cup: Pakistan team’s matches shifted from Mumbai
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Mumbai: The exchange of fire at LoC has had a fallout on the sports field as well. First it was the HIL (Hockey India League) protests on Monday and now the BCCI has decided to shift the venue of the Pakistani team’s matches in the upcoming Women’s Cricket World Cup.
The matches were scheduled to be held at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, but with growing unease in the city with regard to Pakistani sportspersons, the BCCI has chosen Ahmedabad as an alternate venue for the Pakistan matches.
This will be the third time India will host the Women’s Cricket World Cup, having already done so in 1978 and 1997. The matches are scheduled to begin on the 31st of January, with 8 teams taking part, and the winner should be crowned by the 17th of February.
