‘It all depends on…’: Wasim Akram opens up about India-Pakistan confusion over Asian Cup venue | Cricket News – Thelocalreport.in

The 2023 Asia Cup host venue issue has seen officials from the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) give conflicting statements. Pakistan earlier received the hosting rights for the continental event. Then, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, who is also the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Chairman, said that the Indian cricket team will not travel to Pakistan for the Asian Cup 2023. In response to that, the former chairman of the PCB manager Ramiz Raja has warned the BCCI that their decision could have dire consequences as Pakistan could also withdraw from the ODI World Cup in India in 2023.

Recently, the current PCB Chairman, Najam Sethi, revealed the date (February 4 in Bahrain) of a meeting of the ACC, where the issue will be discussed. “Finally, we now have a date to meet with ACC officials. I will attend the ACC meeting on February 4 in Bahrain. I’m not sure where we stand right now; I keep it close to my chest and I will decide it in the meeting. But I can assure you that it will be to improve Pakistani cricket,” Sethi said.

“Najam Sethi gave a very sensible answer. Everything depends on the approval of both governments. you have to speak well [with boards]. This is not ravine cricket, if you don’t come, we won’t go to your country either. I don’t understand who these kids are who come and play cricket in Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying by pakistan cricket.

Akram also commented on the removal of Raja as PCB Chairman.

“He came for six days, now he is back in his original place. Najam Sethi has experience. I think it is a misconception that cricketers should be the chairman of the PCB. It’s an administrative job, so you need to have proper communication with all the boards. Najam Sethi is the right man for the job. I don’t care if people get mad,” Akram said.
