Pakistan Cricket Board is awaiting government go ahead to travel for the mega-event starting March 8.

"Until now no such thing has come from the ICC nor was any such thing discussed at the recent ICC meeting where we raised our concerns clearly about security for the Pakistani players in India," a top PCB official said.

The PCB's statement came in response to media reports that ICC had warned Pakistan of legal consequences should they withdraw from the tournament. The official admitted that if government does not give its permission to play in India for security reasons, there was nothing the PCB could do.

"Look we have got no instructions or directions from our government as yet about sending the team for the World T20. We have asked for advice and we are waiting for it," the official said.

When asked if the PCB apprehends any action from the ICC in case of a pullout, the PCB official said the world body did nothing when Australia pulled out of the ICC World Youth Cup in Bangladesh for security reasons.
