Ex-Pakistan captain Javed Miandad made a controversial remark on the Indian cricket team over the issue of Asia Cup 2023. Javed Miandad had said that if India doesn’t want to come to Pakistan for Asia Cup they can go to hell.
Last Year, BCCI secretary and Asian Cricket Council (ACC) chief Jay Shah said that India will not travelling to Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023 and the tournament would be moved to a neutral venue and Pakistan officials made a comment that if India doesn’t come to Pakistan for Asia Cup, then Pakistan will not go to India for the 2023 World Cup.
Miandad made recent controversial statement that received heavy backlash and he clarified about his comments on his youtube channel:
“Do you know what hell means? If you don’t want to play just don’t. We don’t have a problem. Ask the Indian cricketers. They’ll also say that there should be cricket between the two teams in their respective countries. It’ll benefit both countries.
“If they think that their not coming to Pakistan makes any difference, it doesn’t. That’s all I meant. We are independent. Pakistan has produced high quality cricketers as well as hockey players. Across the globe, neighbor countries play with each other.” he added
I Am Surprised By The Things They Write About The Indian Players – Javed Miandad
The former Pakistan skipper also took a dig at the Indian media stating that they are not too kind to its own players and we should take comments in a positive way.
“The media there is like this only. The competition there is very high. They even write so many things about the Indian players only and I am left surprised by them. This is not done. You should take comments in a positive way. Our press doesn’t react that way to Indian players. What I meant with my comment was if you are not playing, go. Doesn’t make a difference to us. We are not interested.”
