The recent advertisement by BCCI clerk and Asian Cricket Council( ACC) chairman Jay Shah regarding India’s reservation from traveling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023 has met with serious review from severalex-cricketers. numerous, who have represented Pakistan at the transnational position, argued Pakistan Cricket Board( PCB) to maintain a strong station, prompting not to travel to India for the ICC men’s World Cup, which will be played coming time. Some have indeed gone to the extent of blacking
Sunday’s T20 World Cup match in Melbourne.
While Saeed Anwar and Shahid Afridi have formerly expressed their disappointment, the rearmost members to express analogous passions are former Pakistan commander Younis Khan andex-wicketkeeper batter Kamran Akmal.
The brace participated their views on the same on Har Lamha Purjosh, a popular talk show on justice by ARY News. They unanimously agreed that indeed if India decline to take part PCB should host the event in Pakistan.
“ I suppose Jay Shah shouldn’t have said that but since the pellet has been fired I would ask the PCB to take a establishment station on this issue, just like we did in the history( after New Zealand called off Pakistan’s stint at the eleventh hour) and as you know those brigades have begun to travel the country, ” said Younis.
“ But if they( BCCI) decide to stick with their decision also it shouldn’t count to us if the Indian platoon doesn’t share in Asia Cup and we should consider not travelling to India for the ODI World Cup the ensuing time, nor we should agree to host Asia Cup at a neutral venue, ” he added.
Kamran, on the other hand, went a step further and asked for a complete boycott against India, including the forthcoming clash at the T20 World Cup on Sunday.
“ I believe Jay Shah’s statement was unanticipated, and since he attended the Pakistan- India game during this time’s Asia Cup, he should reserve politics for his opposition and avoid dragging it into sports, ” the former wicketkeeper stated.
“ Asia Cup should only be hosted in Pakistan and if that doesn’t be also Pakistan shouldn’t play against India at any position, be it ICC events ’ matches, Asia Cup matches, or indeed their match on October 23, ” he added.
