Islamabad, February 09:

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has blamed the security fears in India for women team’s catastrophic performance at the ongoing World Cup, saying their eves were overwhelmed. Pakistan finished last in the eight-team event after losing all four matches, which were moved to the eastern city of Cuttack when the right-wing nationalist Shiv Sena party threatened to disrupt Pakistan''s matches in Mumbai, the Daily Times reports. The International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to house Pakistan at the clubhouse of the Barabati Stadium instead of a hotel for security reasons, it further reported. PCB chairman said the situation was uncertain for the women''s team and players were overwhelmed by fears as no hotel was willing to give them security after talks with Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik. Pakistan team manager Ayesha Ashar had said at the time of their matches that the squad was happy with the arrangements made at the Barabati stadium, but Malik said he would raise the issue with India. Malik claimed not giving security to our women''s team is a concern and he will raise this issue with the Indian government. Nine Pakistan players were also withdrawn from the Hockey India League over threats from Shiv Sena last month, after clashes killed five soldiers along the de facto border between India and Pakistan in the disputed region of Kashmir. The two nuclear powers are bitter rivals who have fought three wars since independence in 1947. (ANI)
