New Delhi. There is no less than a festival between India and Pakistan for cricket lovers around the world. But at this time the eyes of the world are focused on the antics of the cricket boards of both the countries. Asian Cricket Council (ACC) President Jay Shah has released the schedule of Asia Cup and the next two years 2023-24 on Thursday (5 January). Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) felt very bad on this. PCB chairman Najam Sethi had said this while replying to Jay Shah’s tweet itself.
Let us tell you that Najam Sethi alleged that Jai Shah has issued this schedule by taking a unilateral decision without any consultation or conversation. The Pakistani board has felt the worst that the Asia Cup is hosted by it and the PCB was not talked about at all regarding that tournament. But now let us tell you that the Asian Council has rejected these allegations of Najam Sethi. Gave a befitting reply. The answer is such that perhaps Najam Sethi will not be able to speak at all. ACC has clearly stated in its statement that this schedule has been passed in the meeting of Development Committee and Finance and Marketing Committee.
It is worth mentioning that amidst the tussle between the cricket boards of the two countries, all the member countries were also informed about this through e-mail. The ACC said that the Pakistan Cricket Board was also informed about this through an e-mail on 22 December 2022. But there was no suggestion or reply from their side. After this, Jai Shah has presented this schedule as per the rules.
What did PCB President Najam Sethi say to this?
Jai Shah had released the schedule by tweeting. Responding to this, Najam Sethi had tweeted, ‘Thank you Jai Shah for unilaterally presenting the ACC structure and calendar 2023-24. Especially for the Asia Cup 2023 which is hosted by Pakistan. When you are involved with this, you can also present our PSL 2023 structure and schedule to everyone.
