In October, ACC president and BCCI (Indian cricket board) secretary Jay Shah had said that India will not travel for next year’s 50-over Asia Cup, which is likely to be held in September.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has told ICC officials that it threatened to boycott the 50-over World Cup in India next year to force the neighboring country to send its team for the Asia Cup. Sources have given this information. The Asian Cricket Council (SCC) has awarded the hosting rights for the 2023 edition of the 50-over Asia Cup to Pakistan ahead of the October-November 2023 World Cup in India.

In October, ACC president and BCCI (Indian cricket board) secretary Jay Shah had said that India will not travel for next year’s 50-over Asia Cup, which is likely to be held in September. But after this PCB had threatened to withdraw from the World Cup. But it is learned that PCB chairman Rameez Raja has told International Cricket Council (ICC) officials that the board has not taken any decision regarding not sending its team for the 50-over World Cup in India.

ICC officials, including chief executive Geoff Allardyce, were in Pakistan as guests to watch the home Test series against England. A source in the know told PTI, “Rameez assured the ICC officials that the PCB has not taken any decision not to send its team to India for the World Cup, nor is it in favor of boycotting such a big tournament.” But due to the strained relations between the two countries, the PCB had put pressure on the Indian board to send its team for the Asia Cup. ,

The source said that ICC officials also conveyed their concerns to Rameez regarding his statement that if the Indian team did not participate in the Asia Cup, Pakistan would also not play in the World Cup in India next year. According to the source, Rameez also told the ICC officials that the PCB would not accept the 2025 Champions Trophy being taken out of the country due to India not being able to travel to Pakistan. “Rameez also reminded the ICC officials that the Executive Board (which includes India) had given the hosting rights of the Champions Trophy to Pakistan, so there should be no doubt about the schedule of the tournament,” the source said.
