Lahore: Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq is jittery about obtaining an Indian visa to represent Leicestershire in next week's Champions League Twenty20 and has sought the English county's help in the matter.

Razzaq, a centrally contracted player of the Pakistan Cricket Board, starred for Leicestershire in their successful bid to become the English national Tewnty20 champions last month.

By virtue of his contract with Leicestershire, Razzaq is now qualified to represent them in the Champions Trophy as well.

But sources close to the all-rounder said he was anxious about being able to make it to India on time and has sought the assistance of his county to secure the visa.

"The Indian High Commission has yet to issue him the visa to travel to India and he is worried he might miss a couple of early games which are so important for any team," one source said.

Razzaq played regularly in the rebel Indian Cricket League around the same time the official Indian Premier League was launched.

No Pakistan team has taken part in the Champions League tournament in its first two editions so far due to the strained relations between the two countries.
