Asia Cup 2023: Asia Cup 2023 is to be played in the hosting of Pakistan. The rhetoric about this is not taking the name of ending. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has since said that Team India will not tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup. Since then the President of Pakistan Cricket Board, Ramiz Raja has been furious. Rameez Raja has also said that if Team India does not tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup, then the Pakistan team will not go on an Indian tour for the ODI World Cup next year.
Rameez Raja told BBC Test Match Special, ‘You saw what happened in the World Cup – 90,000 fans came to the MCG. I am a bit disappointed with the ICC. When put to the FIFA president why America is playing Iran, Iran has so many issues regarding women’s rights. So he put forward football and said that it can solve a lot of issues. Through sports, we can be careful of tribal mentality. I think let the bat and the ball do the talking.
Rameez Raja has blamed the BCCI for starting this debate. Raja said, ‘What if the Pakistan government does not allow Pakistanis to travel to India due to security issues. This is a very emotive topic here. The debate was started by the BCCI in a way. We had to answer. Test cricket needs India vs Pakistan.
