The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to retaliate against the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) after secretary Jay Shah gave statements for not coming to the cricket-loving nation to participate in Asia Cup 2023. The BCCI also demanded a neutral venue for the event rather than visiting Pakistan. However, PCB is in no mood to swap the venue.
Sticking to the fact that the entire Asian Cricket Council (ACC), including Shah, gifted the event to Pakistan for hosting, the student and the shocking decision not to visit Pakistan are indigestible to PCB. Consequently, the board’s chairman Mr Ramiz Raja has responded strongly to BCCI’s statement.
According to his decision, Pakistan will not travel to India for World Cup 2022, and the marquee event would be of no use without the major contestant. It will eventually lead to low viewership and cost adversely as well. It is now to see what BCCI would say in response.
While talking to Urdu News, Ramiz highlighted,
“If Pakistan doesn’t take part in the World Cup scheduled in India next year, who will watch it? We have a clear stand: If the Indian team comes here, then we will go for the World Cup.”
“If they don’t come, then they can play the World Cup without us. We will adopt an aggressive approach. Our team is showing performance.
I’ve always said we need to improve the economy of Pakistan cricket, and that can only happen when we perform well. In the 2021 T20 World Cup, we beat India. We beat India in the T20 Asia Cup. In one year, the Pakistan cricket team defeated a billion-dollar economy team twice.”
