India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads over the hosting of the Asia Cup 2023 after the Indian Cricket Board secretary and ACC chief Jay Shah said last year that the tournament must be played at a neutral venue and not in Pakistan. Sources said, after the ACC meeting on Saturday, no decision was taken about where the Asia Cup will be hosted, but the news is that this time, once again the Asia Cup could be held in the UAE.
the final decision is to be taken in March. Actually, this time Pakistan has the right to host the Asia Cup, but the Indian team does not want to go to Pakistan and play the Asia Cup. In such a situation, now the former Pakistani cricketer has expressed displeasure over this and has called India bad.
Javed Miandad said that India is doing wrong, if they will not come to Pakistan and play Asia Cup, then the apex cricket body will have to take a decision on this and should ban them. On the other hand, the Pakistani board has also talked about separating itself from the 50-over World Cup 2023 which will be hosted by India.
Pakistan should change the venue: Ravichandran Ashwin
Now after such rhetoric, Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin gave his opinion on his YouTube video and said that it is not possible that Pakistan should not come to India to play in the World Cup. Ashwin also said that this time the Asia Cup should be held in Sri Lanka because many tournaments were held in Dubai. Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled to start in September. In such a situation, the decision regarding who gets to host the Asia Cup will come in March.
“Asia Cup was supposed to take place in Pakistan. But, India has announced that if it takes place in Pakistan, then we won’t be participating. If you want us to participate, then do change the venue. But we would have seen this happen many times, right? When we say Asia Cup won’t go to their place, they will say that they will also not come to our place,” Ashwin said on his YouTube Channel.
“The final call might be that the Asia Cup will be moved to Sri Lanka. This is an important lead-up to the 50-over World Cup. Many tournaments have taken place in Dubai. I would also be pleased if it is moved to Sri Lanka,” he asserted.
Here’s how fans reacted:
