Javed Miandad, a former captain of Pakistan, harshly criticized the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their attitude in the ongoing dispute over the Asia Cup 2023. The BCCI has pushed on a different location for the event after previously stating that Team India would not travel to Pakistan for the tournament. Furthermore, according to the most recent reports, Pakistan is not expected to host the Asia Cup, however, they may maintain the hosting rights if the venue is chosen in March. Venkatesh Prasad, a legend in India, has responded vehemently to Miandad's criticism of the BCCI. Miandad demanded that the International Cricket Council (ICC) take strict measures against the BCCI in response to the reports that were being circulated following the ACC meeting on Saturday in Bahrain.
"If India doesn't want to travel to Pakistan to play cricket, they can go to hell. At a public gathering, Miandad estimated, "They don't care what India does." "I've supported Pakistan all along. You also know that I don't always leave India when a problem develops. But the fact is, we must consider our contribution. And we ought to struggle for it. We could care less because we will be hosting our cricket. This is ICC's responsibility. There is no point in the regulating body if ICC cannot handle this. For each squad, the same rules must be put into place. Teams like this should be blacklisted if they don't attend no matter how strong they are.
Both the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are traveling down parallel paths since they have different goals for the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 controversy. The PCB is adamant about holding the full tournament in Pakistan, while the BCCI wants it to be hosted at a neutral site so that the Indian team can attend. Former Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razza has taken a fairly unexpected stance amid this conflict. "It benefits cricket and promotes cricket. Only ICC events host India-Pakistan games. Dubai is the finest choice if the Asia Cup has been moved there. It's fantastic for cricket and cricketers," Razzaq said objectively to Geo Super. Razzaq wasn't in accord when questioned if India should be prohibited from hosting international competitions as a result of their refusal to visit Pakistan. "This does not normally take place. It's been going on for a while. It would be fantastic if the two boards could talk to each other across the table. The issue should be resolved by both boards "added he.
PCB reportedly wants the 2023 ODI World Cup to be moved out of India. However, the final decision won't be made until the heads of the two boards get together again for an ICC and ACC meeting next month. Anyway, this controversy is debated among the former and current players of both teams. Even if they find a solution to this situation, the chaos will continue for some time.
