Ahmedabad:People from the minority community in Jamalpur area of the city today urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to allow its cricket team to play in the city during their tour of India.

Holding placards and shouting slogans, the people claimed the city was "peaceful".

"Ahmedabad has been peaceful for over two years now and the Pakistan cricket team should have no fear for playing in Ahmedabad," the placards carried by some of the 60-70 people gathered said.

Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) was also hopeful that PCB would reverse its decision and consider the state capital as Test/ODI venue for the upcoming series.
