New Delhi: Pakistan Cricket Board has officially issued a statement in reaction to the comment of BCCI secretary Jay Shah. 

In the statement, PCB suggesINted that this approach of India for Asia Cup 2023 may impact Team Pakistan’s visit to India for World Cup 2023. 

Earlier, Jay Shah declared that India won’t travel to Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023 and the tournament should be held in neutral venue.

PCB officially issues reaction to Jay Shah’s comment on Asia Cup 2023 

“The PCB has noted with surprise and disappointment of yesterday’s comments made by the ACC President Mr Jay Shah with regards to shifting of next year’s Asia Cup to a neutral venue. The comments were made without any discussion or consultation with the Board of the Asian Cricket Council or the Pakistan Cricket Board (event host) and without any thoughts towards their long-term consequences and implications,” the statement read. 

“After having presided over the ACC meeting during which Pakistan was awarded the ACC Asia Cup with an overwhelming support and response from the ACC Board Members, Mr Shah’s statement of shifting of the ACC Asia Cup has clearly been made unilaterally. This is contrary to the philosophy and spirit for which the Asian Cricket Council was formed in September 1983 – a united Asian cricket body to safeguard the interests of the its Members and organise, develop, and promote the game of cricket in Asia.”

Such comments can have major repercussions

The overall impact of such statements have the potential to split the Asian and international cricketing communities, and can impact Pakistan’s visit to India for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and future ICC Events in India in the 2024-2031 cycle.

The PCB has to date not received any official communication or clarification from the ACC on the statement of the ACC President. As such, the PCB has now requested the Asian Cricket Council to convene an emergency meeting of its Board as soon as practically possible to discuss this important and sensitive matter.”
