“If not Pakistan I would want SriLanka to host Asia Cup 2023” reveals Pakistan Speedster Shoaib Akhtar in his latest interview


Cricket is one of the most popular games in Asia which is enjoyed by millions of people from different countries like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the like. However, when countries like India and Pakistan take on each other, it generates high-octane pressure on players. The popularity of the game between India and Pakistan is the epitome of cricket. Cricket is the only source which allows both countries to come along and know each other. The cricket match between India and Pakistan is watched and enjoyed by both countries’ fans.

However, the Asia cup is to be held this year and Pakistan has been given the chance to host this Asia cup. There have been suspense at the venue as India has clearly been forbidden to step into Pakistan for the Asia cup. The decision not to send the Indian team to Pakistan for the Asia cup was criticised by many cricket experts in Pakistan. Some experts have suggested that the Pakistani team should retaliate. They said that if India does not come to Pakistan for the Asia cup, the Pakistan team will not go to India for the ODI world cup which is to be held in India.

Amid this news, former Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar was heard to feel differently in this matter as he wants India to play the Asia cup no matter the venue. He said that if India is not willing to come to Pakistan for the Asia cup, the venue should be shifted to a neutral venue. Most probably Sri Lanka. He said that he wants to see India and Pakistan play in the final of the Asia cup. However, he also wants the Asia cup to take place in Pakistan but if India does not want to come, then the venue should be shifted to a neutral venue.
