‘What’s going on? Is India afraid to play and lose to Pakistan…”: Former PCB Chairman Trolled BCCI

The ongoing Asia Cup 2023 in Sri Lanka was anticipated to be a cricketing spectacle. However, it has been marred by an unexpected and unwelcome guest rain. The clash between cricketing giants India and Pakistan is always a high-stakes encounter, eagerly awaited by fans worldwide. However, the rain gods had other plans. The game between these two cricketing powerhouses was called off due to persistent rain. It left fans disappointed and yearning for the rivalry to resume on the field.

While the India-Pakistan clash was a washout, the Men in Blue won in a rain-curtailed match against Nepal. Rain interruptions disrupted the game, but India showed their dominance and emerged victorious. It was a glimpse of the cricketing prowess that fans had hoped to witness throughout the tournament.

In stark contrast to the rain-affected matches in Sri Lanka, the contests in Pakistan have proceeded smoothly. The weather has been favourable, allowing the matches to occur without disruptions. It has given Pakistani cricket fans a reason to celebrate as they witness exciting cricketing action.

The prediction of heavy rain in Colombo has cast a shadow of uncertainty over the Super-Four stage games and the final of the Continental Cup. The fear of a possible washout looms large, leaving organizers and fans anxious about the fate of these crucial matches.

Amidst the rain forecasts, there were reports of the games being shifted to another venue. However, nothing was finalized, leading to confusion and frustration. Former PCB chairman Najam Sethi took to social media to voice his criticism of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He accused them of making a mockery of the prestigious event.

“BCCI/ACC informed PCB today that they had decided to shift the next India-Pak match from Colombo to Hambantota because of rain forecasts. Within one hour they changed their mind and announced Colombo as the venue. What’s going on? Is India afraid to play and lose to Pakistan? Look at the rain forecast,” he wrote.

The Asia Cup 2023 has its fair share of challenges, primarily in the form of unrelenting rain. While some matches have been adversely affected, others have carried on smoothly in Pakistan. The uncertainty surrounding the weather in Colombo continues to cause concern.

As cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the remainder of the tournament, the impact of rain on the Asia Cup 2023 serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of the sport and the resilience required to battle against such interruptions.
