‘India does not need to listen to anyone’, Sports Minister responds to Pakistan’s threat

New Delhi. Sports Minister Anurag Thakur, while responding to Pakistan’s threat to pull out of the ICC ODI World in India next year, has said that the Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will answer it and the ODI World Cup 2023 will be held in India itself. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had threatened to pull out of the ODI World Cup following comments made by BCCI secretary Jay Shah on shifting the Asia Cup from Pakistan. After the BCCI meeting, Secretary Jay Shah had commented on organizing the Asia Cup at a neutral venue.

Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur said that BCCI will respond to PCB’s blackmail letter. Along with this, he said that the ODI World Cup will definitely be held in India. He said, “It is a matter of BCCI and the board will respond to it. Next year also there will be a World Cup and teams from all over the world will also play.

Anurag Thakur said, “The Home Ministry will decide, as there are security concerns in Pakistan. It’s not just cricket. England-Australia visited Pakistan, but can they be compared to India?”

According to the decision of the Executive Board of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), Pakistan is going to host the next edition of the Asia Cup next year. Incidentally, Jay Shah is the President of the Asian Cricket Council.

Let us tell you that Pakistan has been given the right to host the Asia Cup. The T20 Asia Cup was shifted from there to the UAE last month due to the economic crisis in Sri Lanka. The 2018 Asia Cup in India was also shifted to the UAE as the BCCI could not get approval from government security agencies to host Pakistan. India and Pakistan play against each other only in Asian and ICC tournaments due to political tensions between the two countries. India last toured Pakistan in 2008 while Pakistan last played a series in India in 2012-13.
