Pakistan’s cricket board (PCB) has written to the International Cricket Council (ICC) asking that the venue of its T20 world cup match against India be shifted, an ICC official said.
The game is scheduled to be played in Dharamsala, but there has been local opposition to the match.
A security assessment team from Pakistan arrived in India on Tuesday and submitted a report.
ICC spokesman Sami Ul Hasan told the BBC a decision had not been taken yet.
A PCB official confirmed to the BBC that the security assessment team had submitted a preliminary report to Pakistan’s interior ministry, which would take a decision on sending the national team for the tournament.
The match is scheduled to be played on 19 March.
Indian media reports said that there had been local opposition to the game being played in Dharamsala in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh since the area was home to some of the soldiers who died in a militant attack on the Pathankot air-force base near the Pakistan border.
India has blamed Pakistan-based militants for the attack.
The state chief minister had refused to guarantee security for the visiting cricket team, despite an assurance by the federal government.
Pakistan-India cricket matches are always keenly anticipated games. The two teams have played six T20 matches against one other.
Indian media have speculated that Kolkata (Calcutta) could be offered as an alternative venue.
