The T20 World Cup between India and Pakistan is going to be played between India and Pakistan tomorrow. From the point of view of cricket, tomorrow’s match is going to be a very high voltage match. But before that, former Pakistan cricketer Kamran Akmal has expressed his disappointment over BCCI Secretary Jay Shah’s statement of playing Asia Cup 2023 at neutral venue. However, in the process of expressing his disappointment, Kamran Akmal got carried away with emotions and said something that the Pakistan team could not do even if he wanted to.
Kamran Akmal said, ‘I believe Jay Shah’s statement was unexpected, and since he watched the Pakistan-India match live during this year’s Asia Cup. So he should have kept politics out of it and avoided dragging it into sports.
Kamran Akmal further said, ‘Asia Cup should be hosted only in Pakistan and if it does not happen then Pakistan should not play against India at any level. Be it matches of ICC events, matches of Asia Cup or their match on 23 October.
Let us tell you that Jay Shah had said that Team India will not go to Pakistan to play the Asia Cup next year. Jay Shah, who is also the chairman of the Asian Cricket Council, had said that the 2023 Asia Cup will be played at a neutral venue. There is anger among his former players due to the removal of Pakistan as host.
