PCB reacts on Jay Shah Controversial Statement on Asia Cup 2023

PCB reacts on Jay Shah Controversial Statement on Asia Cup 2023

Incumbent BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has triggered a fresh controversy after he announced that India won’t travel to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup. Notably, Jay Shah is also the President of the Asian Cricket Council which hosts the ultimate Asian event. Shah has further hinted towards a neutral venue.

Shah made the unprecedented statement after the conclusion of BCCI’s Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on October 18. Interestingly, former president Sourav Ganguly has been replaced by veteran Indian cricketer Roger Binny as the head of the organization

Responding to Shah’s remark, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been hurt and expressed their disgrace through an official press statement. PCB mentioned that the possible impact of such statements could deteriorate the relations between Asian cricket communities and the ICC. Furthermore, it also stated that Pakistan will also reconsider its decision and likely not travel to India for the upcoming edition of the ICC World Cup in 2023.

The disgruntled PCB has also requested the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to host an extraordinary general meeting in wake of President Jay Shah’s statement over the hosting of Asia Cup 2023. ACC is yet to respond to PCB’s request and will take time to respond to the issue.

Jay Shah denial to tour Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023 worsens IND-PAK Relations

Pakistan was awarded the hosting rights of Asia Cup 2023 which was scheduled to take place next year in October. India was too scheduled to host the marquee event back in 2018 but the organizing committee failed to obtain the necessary security clearances from the government to invite Pakistan and hence the tournament was shifted to UAE.

Shah’s controversial statement has further deepened the political tensions between India and Pakistan. India and Pakistan face off only at major international events such as the Asia Cup and all ICC events. The last bilateral series between the two sides took place back in 2012-13. Earlier in the year, England had offered to be a neutral venue for the India-Pakistan test series but both the BCCI and PCB neglected their efforts.

Pakistan has been hosting international fixtures for the past year. Prominent sides such as South Africa and England have already toured the nation whereas New Zealand is set to visit in March-April 2023. Let’s hope for positive feedback soon.
