Najam Sethi, the new head of the PCB, briefed the supporters earlier this week on the status of the nation’s plans to play in the upcoming ODI World Cup in India.
The BCCI and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are somewhat at odds about how they feel about Pakistan hosting the 2023 Asia Cup. India would not visit the nation, according to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, who also suggested holding the tournament at a neutral location.
Former Pakistan cricketers criticised Shah’s announcement, which he made in October. The ODI World Cup, which will be held in India following the Asia Cup, was also threatened with a PCB boycott after the declaration.
Former PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja expressed his thoughts on the matter by citing earlier instances in which teams had refused to visit Pakistan for security fears and what transpired as a result. He also exhorted the board members to exercise leadership and not to comply with India’s demands merely because of their dominance in international cricket.
