The clash of India vs Pakistan in T20 WC 2022  is considered to be one of the greatest of all time. Virat Kohli played a fascinating knock of 82 runs in 53 balls as his two breathtaking sixes against Haris Rauf were considered to be spellbound in the 19th over. Haris Rauf’s variations proved to be ineffective in the death overs.

BCCI and PCB can be seen in a verbal spat as PCB is threatening BCCI that they would boycott ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 if India doesn’t play Asia Cup 2023 in Pakistan. A decision is yet to be made on Asia Cup 2023 by the ACC (Asian Cricket Council) board members.

PCB would be well aware of the fact that boycotting an ICC event could get them banned from the sport. The fans would be hoping that the two boards find a solution as the rivalry between the two nations is getting bigger whereas ICC must intervene in this matter & find a middle ground.

“Gradually started playing cricket, then I started earning match fees for the tape ball matches that used to play. I used to charge per over. People used to pay me 10 to fifteen thousand per over. And that is how I used to make ends meet. I used to send some home, paying my university fees and save some as well,” he added.

Crucial Asia Cup 2023

The Asia Cup 2023 which is tentatively scheduled for September 2023 would serve as a stepping stone for the marquee ODI WC 2023. BCCI has made it clear that they won’t travel to Pakistan citing that it’s their government’s decision. UAE & Qatar have emerged as potential neutral venues for the tournament.

PCB is in a state of transition at the moment as they have named a new coaching staff, Morne Morkel has been named the bowling coach. The upcoming New Zealand white-ball series would be quite important for Pakistan as they have named a full-fledged squad & with only a handful of ODIs left before ODI WC 2023, the Men in Green would be aiming to find an ideal combination.
