Mohammad Hafeez, a former captain of Pakistan, claimed that India, or more especially the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), receives “pampered care” in international cricket as a result of its large revenue sources.

On September 4, India and Pakistan will square off yet again in the Super4 round of the Asia Cup 2022.

India defeated their arch-rivals by five wickets in a nail-biting final over of the first game between these teams, which was played on August 28 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. In the second match of the league stage, India defeated Hong Kong, becoming the first team from Group A to advance to the Super4 level.

On the other side, Pakistan defeated Hong Kong by 155 runs in their second game to go to the Super4 round.

‘India is a revenue-making country’: Mohammad Hafeez

Mohammad Hafeez stated, “I do not know much, but I know that in our society, whoever is the earner is adored by everyone, is the most laadla (pampered), and receives the most kisses from everyone,” in a video of a debate that he shared on Twitter and tagged “Laadla” with a heart-eyes emoji.

Even as the rest of the panel began to laugh at his comment, he persisted in explaining.

“India is a revenue-making country. So even in bilateral series across the world, where they get sponsorship, they get a jackpot, it’s hard to deny these things,” Mohammad Hafeez said.

Mohammad Hafeez responded that it was the second factor when the show’s anchor questioned him about whether India is a “laadla” because they play so well or because they earn more money.

India qualified for the Super 4 stage by defeating Pakistan and Hong Kong and will play Pakistan once more on Sunday.
