Pakistan may withdraw from ODI World Cup if India refuses to attend Asian Cup

With BCCI Minister Jay Shah announcing the Indian Cricket team would not travel to Pakistan for the 2023 Asian Cup, the latter team threatened to withdraw from next year’s World Cup in India.

According to the decision of the Asian Cricket Council executive board, the next tournament of the AFC Asian Cup next year will be held in Pakistan and Jay Shah has stated: “India will play the Asian Cup at one location. neutral point.”

With reports being published about Jay Shah’s decision in the media, another report claims that the Pakistan Cricket Council is considering withdrawing from the ICC World Cup over 50 in India.

“PCB is now ready to make tough decisions and play tough as they are also aware that ICC and ACC events will face commercial debts and losses if Pakistan doesn’t play against India in these multi-team events,” PTI quoted a senior OCB source.

Outside of global or continental events, India hasn’t played against Pakistan since 2008. The last time Pakistan went to India in a short six-game bilateral white ball series was in 2012. The last time India had tour with Pakistan in 2006.

According to previously announced FTP, Pakistan is scheduled to host two major ICC events in the next three years – the Asian Cup (which will be the format that takes place before the 2023 World Cup) next year and the Champions Cup in 2025.

This is the first time the country has been awarded the right to host two major ICC events. However, the BCCI’s decision on a neutral venue may not be considered by the gesture of greeting and there is much speculation that the reaction of PCB and other officials may differ.

Due to political tensions between India and Pakistan, bilateral series between the two countries have been canceled several times.
