Najam Sethi’s statement ahead of the Asia Cup 2023

Pakistan is due to hold both the 2023 Asia Cup and the 2023 Champions Trophy. Najam Sethi said, “BCCI should take a good, rational decision so that we don’t have any problems going forward. I’m not worried about the Asia Cup, it’s the World Cup, and India should not be looking at a situation where we end up boycotting the Asia Cup and also the World Cup, and then India ends up boycotting the Champions Trophy – there’ll be a huge mess. We (Pakistan) are right at the top (ODI rankings). So the thing is, how can you ignore our team and our country? So the ICC should step in. But my sense is that India would not like the ICC to step in.”

India against Pakistan is one of the biggest rivalries in the history of cricket. India last visited Pakistan for the 50-over Asia Cup in 2008. However, bilateral cricket series between the two nations have not taken place since the 2012-13 season.

“The India-Pakistan game is the biggest game in town. It’s bigger than Australia v England, it’s bigger than India v Australia. How can we jeopardise that by stubbornness? Without reason, without explanation, India not coming to Pakistan. The Indian bridge team has been to Pakistan, the Indian kabaddi team has been to Pakistan, and the Indian baseball team has been to Pakistan… So what’s going on? Why can’t the Indian cricket team come to Pakistan?” PCB Chairman Najam Sethi asked.
