The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and a few of its ex-players have expressed their displeasure since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary, Jay Shah, declared that Team India had no intention of travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023. Even Harbhajan Singh saw himself being drawn into a discussion on the subject on a Pakistani television channel prior to the India vs. Pakistan game in the T20 World Cup 2022. In a ferocious attitude, Harbhajan accepted Tanveer Ahmed’s “challenge” to play cricket for Pakistan.
Following the BCCI’s announcement, the Pakistan Cricket Board also released a statement, stating that the decision may have an effect on Pakistan’s team’s participation in upcoming ICC competitions in India.While it appears that the Asia Cup would be contested at a neutral site, it is still unknown whether Pakistan will visit India.
Tanveer Ahmed, a former Pakistani cricketer who attended the show, questioned Harbhajan on whether the Indian team would decline to visit Pakistan if an ICC event was arranged there.In such He advised Bhajji and the Indian team to reject a trip to Pakistan under the given circumstance. In the end, the retiring Indian off-spinner accepted the challenge.
“Harbhajan paaji Says “To bhai le lia hai aakhir tera challenge” (I accept your challenge). Indian cricket is skilled in running their game. PCB is not required. We have stated that we have a problem. Certainly, if the government approves An enraged Harbhajan said.
Ramiz Raza had claimed that Pakistan Cricket lacked the requisite finances and should turn to the BCCI in a statement from the previous year. Either that, or Pakistan cricket will continue to exist if the BCCI offers PCB money. Please don’t travel to India if you sense reluctance. Who is the asker? It is your choice whether or not to participate in the ICC event. We won’t send if our players are not secure there. If that’s what you want, don’t play In a special broadcast hosted by Pakistani media, Harbhajan made a statement.
Harbhajan argued that Pakistan is not necessary for Indian cricket as the discussion continued. In response, the Pakistani anchor added that Pakistan doesn’t require Indian cricket either.
Only ICC competitions and Asia Cups still feature India and Pakistan as opponents. THere is no any type of tournament between these two teams since 2012 and 2013.. Since that time, Pakistan has only visited India once (during the 2016 T20 WC). Currently, the two teams are facing battle in Australia’s opening T20 World Cup matchup.
