India has refused visa to Pakistani team, Faisalabad Wolves, to participate in Champions League Twenty20 tournament scheduled to begin from September 17 against the backdrop of current tensions between the two countries.

The government’s decision not to give visas to the Pakistani team comes in the backdrop of recent ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LOC) creating tension between the two countries.

“As a matter of abundance precaution and caution in terms of safety and security, the government did not give green signal for the cricket team’s visit,” government sources said.

The Faisalabad team, led by national team skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, was invited to play in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League T20 in India, starting on September 17.
