Najam Sethi has strongly criticized the BCCI and ACC for what he perceives as the mishandling of the Asia Cup 2023. The confusion surrounding the tournaments’ venue, particularly the match between Pakistan and India, has left the cricketing world confused and garnered important dissatisfaction within the cricket area.
The debate began when the BCCI, performing on behalf of the ACC, informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about a sudden change in the Super Four stage match’s location. However, this decision was later contradicted by the ACC, which firmly stated that the matches would proceed as initially planned.
Najam Sethi, a former PCB Chairman, expressed his frustration with ACC President Jay Shah, accusing him of turning the Asia Cup schedule into a farce. Sethi even suggested that India’s reluctance to face Pakistan might be driven by a fear of potential defeat.
To support his argument, Sethi shared screenshots of weather forecasts, emphasizing that the chance of rain in Colombo is significantly higher, ranging from 60 to 70 percent, compared to Hambantota, where it’s between 10 and 20 percent.
