The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has expressed its concerns over the long commute to the Nassau County International Stadium in New York, where the team is set to play its group games in the upcoming T20 World Cup. The PCB chairman, Mohsin Naqvi, intervened in the matter and managed to get the team relocated to a new hotel that is just a five-minute drive from the stadium.

The Pakistan team was initially staying at a hotel that was 90 minutes away from the stadium, which raised concerns about the team’s fatigue and well-being before and after their matches. The PCB source spoke on condition of anonymity, stating that the team’s relocation was a major relief for the players.
