Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi has lashed out at the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) decision not to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup next year. Incidentally, the BCCI secretary has made it clear that the Men in Blue won’t travel to the neighbouring country for the next edition of the Asia Cup.

The comments didn’t go down well with many, including Shahid Afridi. The former Pakistan skipper also questionned the BCCI secretary Jay Shah for making such a statement prior to the highly-important India-Pakistan match at the T20 World Cup.

The veteran has also questioned India’s cricket administration. The former Pakistan captain wrote on Twitter:

“When excellent comradery between the two sides in the past 12 months has been established that has created good feel-good factor in the two countries, why BCCI Secy will make this statement on the eve of T20 World Cup match? Reflects lack of cricket administration experience in India.”

Pakistan likely to withdraw for ODI World Cup 2023 in India

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering withdrawing from the 2023 World Cup scheduled to take place in India as well. As per Geo News, PCB is also considering pulling out of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) after BCCI’s decision to not travel to Pakistan for Asia Cup.

Speaking to PTI on condition of anonymity, a PCB source said:

“The PCB is now prepared to take hard decisions and play hard ball because it is also aware that the ICC and ACC events will have to face commercial liabilities and losses if Pakistan does not play India in these multi-team events.”

“The PCB officials are surprised at the timing of Jay Shah’s statement because there is still nearly a year to go before the Asia Cup is held in Pakistan in September 2023,” the official added.

Incidentally, Team India have not toured Pakistan since 2008. The two teams play each other only at multi-nation events due to political unrest between the two countries as well. And, Pakistan beat India twice in recent times as well.

Meanwhile, India are slated to host the ODI World Cup in October-November next year. And, it will be interesting to see what happens in future.
