The ICC has made arrangements to move the Pakistan cricket team to a different hotel in New York following a complaint from the Pakistan Cricket Board regarding a lengthy 90-minute commute to the stadium.

An informed source within the PCB, who preferred to remain anonymous, revealed that PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi's intervention led to the relocation. The new hotel is merely a five-minute drive from the Westbury stadium on Long Island.

Pakistan prepares to face archrival India in their group game this Sunday, before competing against Canada at the same venue on June 11. The Indian team, which also plays its group matches in New York, stays in a hotel just 10 minutes away. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka, after their defeat to South Africa, has also raised concerns about their accommodations, given their hour-long drive to the stadium.
