India and Pakistan will be facing each other fourth time within a year. In the last three encounters, Pakistan has won 3 out of 4 matches; Pakistan defeated India in the T20 World Cup match played in Dubai last year. Each team won one match out of the two matches played in Asia Cup 2022 in Dubai this year.
Fans from both sides of the border have pinned high hopes on their teams. But the sudden decision of President Asian Cricket Council Jay Shah to move Asia Cup 2023 from Pakistan to a neutral venue in Dubai has turned the environment sour.
BCCI said that the Indian cricket team would not be touring Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023. Fans in Pakistan have expressed disappointment in the decision announced by AAC President Jay Shah. PCB gave a firm yet polite response to BCCI and AAC in the statement issued yesterday. PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja has assured the fans to fight till the end for the due rights of Pakistan.
