Strained political and diplomatic relations between the two neighbors mean that Pakistan and India only meet in international cricket tournaments and not bilateral events.

Pakistan’s participation in the World Cup was dependent on security clearance from Islamabad and even when this clearance was granted, the government said it still had serious reservations over the security of the team.

Visas for the Pakistani squad were issued only two days before their departure.

“The hospitality is good and we are well taken care of, but we can’t go out and we have to tell security before we go out because security is an issue,” said Hasan, 29, who has an Indian wife.

Asked about the 13 fit players available for Friday’s game against Australia, Hasan replied: “Yes, most of the players have recovered from fever, but room sickness happens when you stay in a hotel room. “
