The reasoning behind the visa stipulation seems to be: why on earth would anyone want to follow cricket for the sake of the sport? If you don’t have your country to cheer, you shouldn’t be watching it, at least not from the stands. But, obviously, this isn’t about MEA seeing a tournament only through a nationality angle. It’s Pakistan. No Pakistan passport-holding fan has, reportedly, been given a visa to come over to India to watch any World Cup game. The only way in is if you’re a non-Pakistani passport-holding Pakistani. So, London mayor Sadiq Khan could have joined his countryman Mick Jagger on Saturday to watch the Pakistan-England game.
