KARACHI (Reuters) - Cricket officials from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh decided on Monday to push for a common visa that would allow spectators easier travel between the 2011 World Cup co-hosts during the tournament.
The four co-hosts also decided at a meeting in Bhurban, Pakistan to discuss possible changes to the duration of the next World Cup with the International Cricket Council (ICC).
"Every effort would be made to make this World Cup a spectator friendly one with special emphasis on keeping low priced tickets for the local people," Indian cricket board President Sharad Pawar said.
The cricket boards of the four countries would also seek cooperation with their governments to secure a common visa for the tournament.

With proper govt co-ordination this can be easily defused. A background check attached would be a minimum requirement which may slow down the process. However if the citizens are informed about the process with some time in their hand at least a year or two. This is a non-issue.

Also for BD there can be three entry points. benapole, comilla (agartala) and zia Intl. For SL only one colombo. for India and pakistan few airports and land ports. having special immigration service in these entry and exit points can be enough to tackle the terrorism issue with ease.

Common visa is a good idea.

Originating from the sub-continent and being afraid of terrorism, is something like wanting to swim but not willing to get your feet wet. :-p

I like the idea of the Common Visa, but with reservations. It can lead to security breaches, and we definitely dont want that.

And Sohel Bhai .. fantastic idea. 2011 we shall watch it together inshallah. And dont forget the Hajir Biriyani :).

Look guys, visa is not an issue for trans-country games. as it is to go to india pak or sl we have to go through visas... getting one visa saves a lot of hassle. at the end of the day whoever's crossing borders are gonna get checked by a man with a badge. dont make it sound like getting a common visa means, crossing an unchecked border. Some common sense really cant hurt

It doesn't matter wheather they issue a same visa or not, there is no doubt even if we set a cost of 1 lakh each for a seat, it will be a packed stadium. If people from asia can sell a kidney to go to the world cup, imagine how it will be when its gonna be played in their own backyard ! :ticking:
