In the midst of the BCCI-PCB standoff, Wasim Akram sent a stern warning to ACC President Jay Shah, Agar aapko kuch kehna hi tha.
The location of the men’s Asia Cup for the following year is a point of contention between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). India won’t be travelling to Pakistan to compete in the continental event, according to Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI and head of the Asian Cricket Council, who made those announcements earlier this week. He also said that a neutral venue will be chosen for the Asia Cup.
Jay Shah, the president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and secretary of the BCCI, recently made it clear that the Indian squad will not travel to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup. There was discussion about holding this event at a neutral location in such a circumstance. His former teammates in cricket, including the Pakistan Cricket Board, are upset by Jay Shah’s statement. Pakistan has lately hosted international cricket once again. Many teams have visited this nation. Former Pakistani cricketer Jay Shah is seen furious as a result of his statement. While several experts warned against travelling to India for the upcoming 2023 World Cup, some advised against Pakistan as well.
Wasim Akram stated to A Sports, “India cannot dictate how Pakistan plays cricket. The cricket board has made a fantastic statement. After ten to fifteen years, cricket has also begun in Pakistan. Despite the fact that I used to play sports, I am unaware of current political events. But it’s crucial to engage in conversation. If you had been forced to utter Jai Shah Sahab, you would have contacted our President at the office and convened the Asian Council meeting. It is debated after you express your opinions.
