As per the report in the Times of India, Zaka Ashraf took the decision to travel to India, after it was confirmed that the media contingent of Pakistan, including 60 members, got the go-ahead to submit their passports for an Indian visa to cover the ODI World Cup 2023. Notably, the media contingent from Pakistan weren’t able to be at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Ahmedabad to cover the matches, after they couldn’t get their visa to travel to India.

Zaka Ashraf was quoted as saying about the latest development, “I have delayed my travel to India, and I am travelling tomorrow after receiving confirmation that Pakistan’s journalists have been asked to submit their passports to obtain visas to cover the mega event. I am happy that my conversation with the foreign office helped in achieving a positive development regarding the visa delay.”

“I am extremely pleased with the way the players have performed so far in the World Cup, winning both matches. The PCB management committee and the entire nation stand firmly behind the players for a successful campaign in the ongoing World Cup. I am travelling to India to motivate the team, and my message to them before the India contest will be to play fearlessly as they have been playing throughout the event,” he added.
