ICC shifts Pak-India World T20 venue to Kolkata
Owing to security concerns, the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday moved the venue for IndiaPakistan World T20 match to Kolkata from Dharamsala, which is scheduled to take place on March 19. The ICC made a formal announcement at a hurriedly convened press conference in New Delhi.
"The decision has been taken to relocate the IndiaPakistan match from Dharamsala to Kolkata for security reasons," chief executive of the cricket's governing body, David Richardson, told reporters. "The bottom line is ... security is paramount and it's a difficult decision, not one that we wanted to make because we wanted to stick with the original plan but one we've been forced into."
