‘Pakistan Is Coward’: BCCI Hit Out At PCB Over Their Demand Of Change In Venues For The World Cup

In a historic turn of events, India is set to host the prestigious fifty-over Cricket World Cup for the first time in October. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are engaged in a heated dispute over the tournament’s schedule. The BCCI’s delay in releasing the schedule has been attributed to the PCB’s demands, raising concerns about the successful organization of the tournament.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah had initially promised to unveil the World Cup schedule after the World Test Championship (WTC) final in early June. However, more than ten days have passed since the WTC final, and the BCCI has failed to deliver on its promise. BCCI officials have placed blame on the PCB for the delay, alleging that the neighboring cricket board has imposed certain conditions before confirming their participation.

The PCB has voiced its concerns and put forth specific stipulations that have further complicated the scheduling process. Najam Sethi, a prominent figure in the PCB, recently stated that they want their match against India to be moved from Ahmedabad to another venue. Additionally, the PCB has expressed reservations about playing their match against Afghanistan in Chennai, citing the spin-friendly nature of the Chepauk pitch.

In response to the PCB’s demands, a top BCCI official launched a scathing attack on the PCB, accusing them of being insecure. The official emphasized that the PCB’s conditions were the primary cause of the delay in releasing the World Cup schedule. The frustration within the BCCI stems from the fact that the PCB had to relinquish their sole hosting rights after agreeing to co-host the Asia Cup with Sri Lanka.

The ongoing clash between the BCCI and the PCB raises concerns about the smooth execution of the Cricket World Cup. With the tournament just a few months away, the delay in finalizing the schedule could have ripple effects on logistical preparations, ticket sales, and overall fan engagement. The reputation of both cricket boards is also at stake, as cricket enthusiasts eagerly await a resolution to the scheduling conflict.
