PTI chief to watch Pakistan-India match


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will watch a high-voltage Twenty20 match between Pakistan and India on March 19.


According to well-placed PTI’s sources, Imran Khan has finalized arrangements to travel to New Delhi on March 18.

The former Pakistan captain will give his expert opinion on a local TV channel before traveling to Kolkata, where Pakistan and India will clash on March 19.

The move comes after Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali allowed PCB to send the team to India for the mega event.

Pakistan was seeking written and verbal assurance from the Indian government about foolproof security of Shahid Afridi-led team during the whole tour.

The demand was made after various Indian parties announced plans to hold protests against Pakistan’s participation in the World Cup.
