“Indeed, we will go. It’s anything but a two-sided arrangement, it’s a World Cup of tennis so we need to go. There was no correspondence with the legislature as it’s a world occasion, we need to maintain the IOC contract,” AITA Secretary-General Hironmoy Chatterjee told ANI.
“The group of six players, bolster staff and mentor will go Pakistan. I will likewise oblige the group. We will put in the visa application for everybody. Pakistan hockey group made a trip to India for the World Cup and now we are likewise going,” he included.
The Davis Cup Draw was taken off in February this year. In any case, stressed connection among India and Pakistan, following the Pulwama psychological oppressor assault in Indian on February 14, put a question mark on Indian tennis group’s visit to Pakistan.
