World Cup tournament director Ratnakar Shetty says there's no chance the April 2 final will be moved from Mumbai.

A right-wing political party with roots in Mumbai was reported in the domestic media Friday as saying it would decide to see who wins the India vs. Pakistan semifinal at Mohali on Wednesday before deciding whether or not to disrupt the marquee match.

Shetty isn't concerned, saying "Everybody knows the final will be in Mumbai, there's no chance for shifting the venue, no matter whoever comes to play."

Shiv Sena has a history of trying to disrupt visits by Pakistan's cricket team to India. Pakistan has not visited India since 2007, the last tour being canceled after a November 2008 terror attack at Mumbai.
