There has been a huge discussion around India and Pakistan’s participation in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023, several cricketers from both sides have made a comment on the marquee event participation.
Former Pakistan Legendary player Javed Miandad has made a shocking comment on India’s refusal to participate in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023.
“Dekho Security Bul Jao Agar Maut Aani hain toh aani hain usme koi bhi kuch nahi kar sakta( Forget Security if you are destined to die you will die as life and death is in hands of the almighty).
“We are big hearted people and if they want us to come to India we will go and you would realize that we went for the last time but they didn’t come here when we asked them to come” he added.
Things have been pretty disappointing in reference to cricketing relationship between two countries post 2008, after Mumbai attacks these two teams haven’t travelled in these two countries quite often for playing cricket.
Talking about the Asia Cup 2023, participation, BCCI inside sources have already clarified this while talking to different media outlets, that we will be playing all our matches on neutral venue and we won’t be travelling to Pakistan for security reasons”
Asia Cup 2023, matches will be played in Pakistan and neutral venue, where Men in Green will be hosting rest of the teams barring India on their homeland but India will be playing all their games in UAE.
Also, If India manages to qualify for the final, they will play their final match at UAE.
However, this is not the first time we have seen Pakistan cricketers haven’t spoken ill about BCCI and Indian Cricket.
It is clear that India and Pakistan will not play against each other in Asia Cup 2023 on the latter’s venue and another World Cup event which is scheduled in India still venue where these two teams will play against each other is yet to be decided and based on reports in different media outlets, New Delhi might host this mega event.
