Yes, the Pakistan hockey team will be visiting India to take part in the Hockey World Cup that is going to be kicked off in the month of November-December this year. This news has put the end on all notions of Pakistan not coming to play this world class event due to political turbulence between the two countries. Pakistan will be coming to India because it is an International Hockey Federation event.

The necessary documentation and permission has been granted by external affairs says, Narinder Batra, FIH President. There are some other procedures that Pakistan and other nations have to follow like apply for the visa 60 days prior, he further added.

The world cup in India will be played from November 28 to December 16 and fans are hoping for India and Pakistan clash and India may give a memorable performance at home. However, underestimating Pakistan in hockey and taking them lightly no country wants to do because they won the four tittles in 1971, 1978, 1982, and 1994 in the past.
