The ICC has moved the Pakistan team to another hotel in New York after the Pakistan Cricket Board complained about a 90-minute drive to the ground for its forthcoming Twenty20 World Cup games.

A source at the Pakistan Cricket Board told AP on Thursday that after chairman Mohsin Naqvi intervened, the Pakistan team was moved to a hotel which is just a five-minute drive from the purpose-built stadium on Long Island in Westbury, New York.

Pakistan is scheduled to play its group games there against archrival India in New York on Sunday before taking on Canada at the same venue on June 11.

The PCB source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The Indian cricket team, which is playing its three group games in New York, is staying in a hotel which is just 10 minutes from the ground. India won its first match there on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka, which was bowled out for 77 against South Africa in its first match, has already expressed concern over its team’s long drive to the ground in New York after being allocated a hotel which was more than an hour’s drive from the venue.

Pakistan will travel to New York after playing its opening Group A game against co-host United States in Dallas on Thursday.
