PCB vs BCCI: The Pakistan Cricket Board has suffered a major setback. Actually, the hosting of the 2023 Asia Cup has been snatched from Pakistan. At the same time, after this decision, the Pakistan Cricket Board is furious. He has threatened to be out of the Asian Cricket Council.
In fact, BCCI secretary and Asian Cricket Council chief Jay Shah announced that the Asia Cup would not be held in Pakistan. It will be organized at neutral venue. After this decision of Jay Shah, the PCB officials held a meeting. In the meeting, several options were considered after India’s unilateral decision against Pakistan tour. Let us tell you that India and Pakistan compete only in global cricket tournaments. There has been no bilateral series between the two countries since 2012.
Asia Cup to be played at Neutral Venue
Asian Cricket Council President Jay Shah said that the Asia Cup 2023 will be played at a neutral venue. The Indian government decides on allowing our team to go to Pakistan. We will not comment on this. For the 2023 Asia Cup, it has been decided that the tournament will be held at a neutral venue.
Why Team India can’t go on Pakistan tour
Relations between India and Pakistan are very bad. At the same time, the Indian government has separated from all bilateral relations, accusing Pakistan of terror funding.
India only publicly engages with Pakistan only on world forums. There is no diplomatic relationship between the two countries after Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Pakistan in 2015.
At the same time, the terrorist attacks in Pulwama and Pathankot and the surgical strikes carried out by India in response to it worsened the relationship between the two countries.
In view of all these reasons, the Government of India does not allow BCCI to go to Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023.
Pakistan can protest
After being snatched away from hosting the Asia Cup, Pakistan has threatened to separate from the Asian Cricket Council. On the other hand, Pakistan can also protest apart from this.
One-day World Cup is going to be organized in India in the year 2023, in such a situation, the Government of Pakistan can oppose it and can refuse to send the team to the World Cup.
At the same time, let us tell you that the hosting of Asia Cup has been snatched from Pakistan, but in the year 2025, Pakistan has to host the ICC Champions Trophy. In such a situation, there can be a competition between both the countries and PCB and BCCI at that time.
