Islamabad:Indian High Commission on Wednesday denied reports that it had not issued visas to Pakistani cricketers who want to play in next year's IPL and said it is processing the applications of the players.
The High Commission said it was not informed by the Pakistan Cricket Board or the Indian Premier League of any deadline for issuing the visas.
"The High Commission was approached by the Pakistan Cricket Board for issuance of visa to only one player (Sohail Tanvir), while three other players submitted visa applications to the High Commission of India in Wellington. These visa applications are being processed," said a statement issued by the mission.
"The High Commission of India was not advised about any deadline for issuing visas to Pakistani players either by the IPL Organising Committee or the Pakistan Cricket Board," the statement said.
Reports in a section of the media here had said that Pakistani cricketers would not be able to participate in the IPL as they had not been issued visas by the Indian High Commission.
