Pak-India hockey series in UK postponed due to visa issues


ISLAMABAD, May 08 (APP): A three-match hockey series between
former stars of Pakistan and Indian hockey teams, that was scheduled
to take place next week, is likely to be delayed as some former
Pakistan Olympians and internationals could not get UK visa in time.
According to a foreign news agency, the three matches were due
to be played on May 13, 14 and 15 with the Berkshire Hockey Club
the host.
Pakistan junior hockey team’s head coach and former Olympian Tahir Zaman, who was part of Pakistan team for this series, told APP on Sunday that some Pakistan players could not get UK visas in time and now the series might take place at some later dates.
