As the 2023 Asia Cup controversy rages on, reactions from cricketers, fans and pundits are pouring in. With the latest meeting of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) postponing a decision on the venue of the continental tournament, India’s veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has also joined the social media world by voicing his opinion on the subject. Ashwin has said in a video on his YouTube channel that it is not possible for Pakistan to skip the ODI World Cup in India if the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refuses to travel to their country for the Asia Cup.
“The Asia Cup was to be held in Pakistan. But, India has announced that if it happens in Pakistan, we will not participate. If you want us to participate, change the venue. But we must have seen this happen many times. is, isn’t it? Videos on his YouTube channel,
The finger-spinner downplayed Pakistan’s “ODI World Cup threat”, suggesting it is not possible for them to miss that tournament.
“But, I think it is not possible,” Ashwin said of Pakistan’s claim of missing the 50-over World Cup if India does not travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup.
As far as the hosts of the tournament are concerned, Ashwin feels that the tournament should be shifted to Sri Lanka and not UAE as there have been too many tournaments in the Middle East recently.
“The final decision could be that the Asia Cup is shifted to Sri Lanka. It is an important lead-up to the 50-over World Cup. There have been several tournaments in Dubai. I would also be happy if it is shifted. ” Sri Lanka,” he insisted.
The deadlock over the hosting of the Asia Cup is not taking its name. However, the ACC will have to take a decision in March as the tournament is to be held in September.
