Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) chairman Syed Sultan Shah demanded on Saturday that the Blind Cricket World Cup 2011 be shifted from England after the Pakistan team was denied visas to play four matches there as part of preparation for the tournament.

The reigning world champions were due to tour England from August 9-18 to play three one-dayers and a Twenty20 game as part of their build-up for the World Cup. However, the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) denied the team visas earlier this week because it was not convinced the players would return to Pakistan once the tour was over.
