The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that the cricketers and support staff, travelling from India and South Africa for the remaining matches of Pakistan Super League (PSL) sixth edition in Abu Dhabi, have been issued visas by the UAE authorities.
The Indian contingent mainly comprises of broadcasters and technicians while the cricketers from South Africa include Faf Du Plessis, Herschelle Gibbs, David Miller, Rilee Rossouw, Cameron Delport and Michael Smith.
Most of the people, who will be travelling to Abu Dhabi from Pakistan via chartered flights, have also been issued UAE visas.
Earlier on Tuesday, the PCB had postponed its scheduled chartered flights to UAE to transfer the players and support staff. Two aircraft were scheduled to leave from Lahore and Karachi on Wednesday, but the flight was later delayed by 24 hours. “Departure to UAE from Pakistan was delayed by a day due to non-issuance of visas of all passengers,” a PCB official had said.
