BCCI President Roger Binny Thanks PCB For The Hospitality During Asia Cup 2023

In a heartwarming display of sportsmanship, BCCI President Roger Binny extended his gratitude to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for their warm hospitality during the Asia Cup 2023. This article delves into the details of this gesture and the camaraderie it signifies in cricket.

As Pakistan co-hosted the Asia Cup 2023 along with Sri Lanka, they invited BCCI chief Roger Binny and other BCCI officials to witness the cricketing spectacle on their home turf. Pakistan hosted a total of four games out of the 13 scheduled matches.

During a dinner hosted at the Governor’s house, Roger Binny expressed his appreciation for the hospitality the Pakistan Cricket Board extended. He fondly referred to his Pakistan trip as a “wonderful experience” and conveyed greetings from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Indian cricket enthusiasts.

“I would like to thank the Pakistan Cricket Board for the invitation to tonight’s programme. I bring you greetings from the BCCI, and from the cricket lovers of India. As your Excellency said that India-Pakistan is one of the biggest games that is played. I can tell you, sir. When India plays Pakistan, everything comes to a standstill,” ANI quoted Roger Binny as saying.

Roger Binny highlighted the significance of India vs. Pakistan cricket matches. He emphasized that when these arch-rivals face off, it’s not just a game; it’s an event that captivates nations. He noted that during India-Pakistan clashes, work comes to a standstill, and streets are deserted as people across both countries gather around their television sets to watch the game.

“People don’t work, the roads are empty. Everybody’s in front of the television watching cricket. That’s how big cricket is in India and Pakistan. I must thank the Pakistan Cricket Board for its hospitality from the time we crossed the border this afternoon. It was a wonderful experience,” Binny further added.

Binny also shed light on the enormous appeal of cricket in countries like India and Pakistan. He underscored that the sport holds a special place in the hearts of millions, transcending boundaries and creating a shared passion.

In an unfortunate turn of events, the India vs. Pakistan match during the Asia Cup 2023 was washed out due to rain. However, both India and Pakistan had already secured their spots in the Super Four round from Group B. Their upcoming clash on September 10 is highly anticipated by cricket enthusiasts worldwide.

As the Asia Cup 2023 unfolds, the final two teams from Group B are yet to be determined. The tournament’s pinnacle, the Asia Cup 2023, is scheduled for September 17, promising an enthralling culmination to this cricketing extravaganza.

Roger Binny’s gratitude toward the PCB exemplifies the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie that cricket fosters. Despite the intense on-field rivalries, moments like these remind us that cricket is more than just a game—a bridge that connects nations and cultures.
