Former legendary batsman Javed Miandad lashed out at India with the currently ongoing tensions between Pakistan and India regarding holding the Asia Cup.
As per the reports, in October 2022, the Pakistani cricket authorities hinted that they may withdraw from the World Cup scheduled to be held in India the following year. This statement came a day after Indian officials announced that they would not send a team to the 2023 Asia Cup, which will be held in Pakistan.
In response to the controversy, Miandad stated that “India can refuse to tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup and go to hell.”
He further added to his statement,
“I have always been saying, if India don’t to come, we don’t care. They can go to hell. We are getting our cricket. It’s ICC’s job to control such things, else there’s no point of having a governing body,” Miandad said while speaking to media.
“ICC should have one rule for every country. If such teams don’t come, no matter how strong they are, you should remove them.
“They should play, why aren’t they playing? They are afraid of consequences.
“Even in our times, they would not play because they were afraid of consequences. India’s crowd is ‘nasty’. Whenever India would lose, no matter against whom, they would burn houses. That’s what they are afraid of.”
