" The PSF had planned to send its three top players Nasir Iqbal, Danish Atlas and Farhan Zaman for the competition in Kuala Lumpur that starts Monday and will end Saturday."
Islamabad, Aug 18 - Pakistani players were forced to miss the Professional Squash Association's CIMB Malaysian Open Squash Championship since they were not issued visas by the Malaysian High Commission.

A Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) official said that the federation had applied for visas well in time by Aug 11 but the Malaysian High Commission, along with other foreign mission offices, were closed for the past week due the protests marches by political parties here in the capital, reports Xinhua.

The PSF had planned to send its three top players Nasir Iqbal, Danish Atlas and Farhan Zaman for the competition in Kuala Lumpur that starts Monday and will end Saturday.

The official said the world rankings of the Pakistani players would now take a hit by missing this tournament.
