“Who will watch World Cup in India if Pakistan doesn’t take part?” Ramiz Raja gave massive statement to BCCI
The tension between India and Pakistan is nothing different in cricket as well and it’s the same as the political relation between both sides. The sides don’t play bilateral series with each other for the past few years.
We only see their face off in ICC tournament or big multi-national tournaments like Asia Cup and the craze for those matches are amazing and all fans wait for so long to see that epic clash.
India is not willing to go to Pakistan for the Asia cup
The host for the next Asia cup is Pakistan and the board has cleared that they host this tournament in Pakistan and that’s why BCCI has made it clear that they will not to Pakistan for Asia Cup.
A few years back Pakistan was using UAE as their home ground as no country wanted tk to go to Pakistan but now a few big countries like England have also been on a tour of Pakistan and that’s why Pakistan is willing to have Asia Cup in Pakistan.
Ramiz Raja gave a reply to BCCI’s decision :
After the BCCI statement, Ramiz Raja in a recent interview told that if India will not come to Pakistan for this Asia Cup then they will also boycott ICC World Cup 2023 which is scheduled to happen in India.
He even said that if the Pakistani team will come come come World Cup 2023 then the viewership will be zero and no one will be interested in watching the World Cup. Now the Indian fans are making fun of him because of this statement by him.
