No India vs Pakistan Test Match in the Near Future, Says BCCI Neutral Venue
The BCCI’s decision to reject the PCB’s proposal that the India vs Pakistan be held at Neutral Venue will likely be disappointing for cricket fans worldwide. The two countries are the most popular cricket teams in the world, and a Test match between them would have been a significant attraction.
However, the BCCI’s decision is understandable, given the political tensions between the two countries. The two countries have been in a long-running conflict over the Kashmir region, and there are concerns that a cricket match between the two countries could be used as a propaganda tool by either side.
The BCCI has said it is open to playing Pakistan in ICC events, such as the World Cup and the Champions Trophy. However, the two countries will likely play a bilateral series once their political tensions are over.
In addition to rejecting the PCB’s proposal for a Test match, the BCCI has also said that India will not send its team to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup. The tournament will be in Pakistan, but the BCCI has said it is unsafe for its players to travel.
The PCB has said that it is disappointed with the BCCI’s decision, but it has said that it will continue to try to convince the Indian board to play cricket with Pakistan.
