UK will not host any Blind cricket events


The Word Blind Cricket Council (WBCC) will not any future Blind cricket tournaments or major cups in the United Kingdom.

This statement cam after UK decided not to grant visas to four members of the WBCC for attending the Annual General meeting of WBCC from the 24th-27th of October. The four members included Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

The president of World Blind Cricket Council Syed Sultan Shah has said that it is disappointing to see such behavior and was adamant that its his right to attend such events of the World Blind Cricket Council and so consequently under such circumstances any major event in the UK is not possible (quotes via Dawn)

“How can we host international tournaments-events in the UK when four of our member countries were denied visas to attend the Annual General Meeting,” Sultan said.

“It doesn’t make any sense that an elected WBC president recognised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) is denied UK visa just on probabilities.”

“It was my fundamental right to chair the Annual General Meeting of the organisation,” he said. “We have boycotted the AGM and have made a decision to not host any blind cricket events in the UK in future till the time I remain the WBC president.”
