ICC Made Big Revelation On PCB Boycotting Next Year ODI World Cup In India

A fresh update is coming from Pakistan on the issue of boycotting the next year’s ODI world cup, which is scheduled to be held in India. As per the reports, the Pakistan cricket board informed the ICC officials that it had only threatened to boycott the world cup to put pressure on the Indian team management to send their Indian team to Pakistan for the next Asia Cup, which is scheduled to be held in Pakistan.

It further stated that PCB Chairman told the official that no decision had been taken to boycott the World Cup next year. A few ICC officials, CEO Geoff Allardice, had travelled to Pakistan during the home series against England.

“Ramiz assured the ICC officials that PCB had made no decision on not sending its team to India for the World Cup, nor was it in favour of boycotting such a mega event, but because of the strained cricket relations between the two countries, the PCB had to exert pressure to get the Indian board to send its team for Asia Cup,” the source revealed.

Further reports revealed that the PCB chairman insisted to the officials to remain the hosting of the champions trophy to Pakistan irrespective of whether India sent their players or not.

Ramiz was clear that Pakistan would not be receptive to the tournament being moved elsewhere because of India, as it had already started heavy investment in building or renovating infrastructure for the ICC event.

Ramiz reminded the ICC officials that the executive board, which included India, had given hosting rights of the Champions Trophy to Pakistan, so there should be no confusion as to where the tournament will be held on schedule,” reports further stated.

The tension between the nation rose in October after ACC president and BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced that the Indian team is not travelling to Pakistan for the next year’s Asia cup, after which Pakistan threatened to boycott the ODI world cup next year.
