World Cup 2023 | Former Pakistan batsman Javed Miandad once again spewed venom, said this about the Indian team

Karachi: Veteran batsman Javed Miandad has once again spewed venom against India, saying that Pakistan will have to host the ICC World Cup (2023) and other matches in the neighboring country till then. Should not go unless the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) agrees to send its team to their country first. According to the draft schedule of the ODI World Cup prepared by the ICC, Pakistan will take on India in the much-anticipated encounter on October 15 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, 66-year-old former Pakistan captain Miandad believes that now it is India’s turn to tour Pakistan. Also Read: “Pakistan went to India in 2012 and even in 2016 and now it is the turn of Indians to come here,” Miandad said. He said, “If I had to decide, I would never go to India to play any match, not even the World Cup. We are always ready to play with them (India) but they never respond in the same way. Miandad said, “Pakistan cricket is big… We are still producing quality players. So I don’t think it makes any difference to us if we don’t go to India.” India last toured Pakistan in 2008 for the 50-over Asia Cup. Since then bilateral cricket relations have been suspended due to geopolitical tensions between the two countries. Miandad believes that sports should not be mixed with politics. He said, “I have always said that one cannot choose one’s neighbor so it is better to cooperate with each other. I have always said that cricket is a game that brings people closer and can remove misunderstandings and grievances between countries. Miandad’s reaction came at a time when Pakistan is being forced to host the upcoming Asia Cup under a ‘hybrid model’ with India playing all its matches in Sri Lanka. Miandad, who has been a vocal critic of India, is not happy with the decision. He said, “It was believed that they would not send their team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup even once, so now the time has come for us to take a tough stand.”
