The Worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) sources on Wednesday dismissed speculations about Pakistan taking part in their World Cup matches in Bangladesh as an alternative of India because of the political pressure between the 2 nations, terming it a “figment of creativeness”. The rebuttal got here after reviews that discussions have been held throughout the latest ICC board assembly in Dubai about Pakistan presumably taking part in their league video games in Bangladesh.
“Nobody is aware of if PCB chief Mr Najam Sethi has had any casual dialogue along with his Bangladeshi counterpart Najmul Hasan Papon however this may be stated with a level of certainty that no such discussions occurred formally that Pakistan will play in Bangladesh,” an ICC board supply aware of the developments instructed PTI on the situation of anonymity.
The supply did level out that procurement of visas was a problem that was mentioned and, opposite to conjectures created from the PCB’s half, the Indian cricket board has assured of all help.
“The BCCI has categorically stated that there will probably be no issues with procurement of visas. One of many details for a number nation is that every one collaborating nations will probably be given visas on time. From ICC’s half, Bangladesh shouldn’t be even in its scheme of issues as a co-host as of now,” the supply stated.
“Suppose Pakistan attain the semi-finals or win to play the finals, do they anticipate the matches to be performed in Bangladesh. This isn’t a theatre of absurd occurring,” the board member added.
The highest brass in BCCI circles understands that this can be a strain put by the PCB to host the complete Asia Cup in Pakistan, which is not being appeared upon as a possible resolution.
“We perceive that this can be a form of strain tactic utilized by PCB due to the Asia Cup subject. However let me inform you, in the end, Asia Cup will even be performed in UAE or Qatar and doubtless Pakistan will even must play its matches in one among these nations,” a BCCI supply stated.
Asian Cricket Council (ACC) chairman and BCCI secretary Jay Shah has already made it clear that India shouldn’t be travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup and that it is going to be held at a impartial venue.
“So far as Pakistan taking part in its Asia Cup video games in Pakistan is worried, the price range for the match is handed by the Asian Cricket Council. If ACC says that it isn’t a.netmercially viable proposition to carry Asia Cup in two nations, how can Pakistan play its video games at house. ACC, for all you recognize, may not move the price range,” a board supply stated.
