New Delhi: Amid the recent debate over India taking part in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 hosted by Pakistan, Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur said that the country is not in a position to listen to anyone. He said that the World Cup will be hosted by India and every country including Pakistan will be invited.
Reacting to the recent letter from the Pakistan Cricket Board over the comments of Asian Cricket Council (ACC) President Jay Shah about hosting the upcoming Asia Cup on a “neutral venue”, Anurag Thakur said that “It’s a matter of BCCI and the board will look into it to make comments. India is a land of sports, where not only one but many World Cups have been hosted and the next World Cup too will be hosted in India with teams from around the world participating in it.”
He further added, “India cannot be ignored in any sector. It has contributed a lot to the world of cricket and the World Cup will be grand, historic, and successful,”.
PCB in an official statement said that BCCI Secretary Jay Shah’s comments about holding the 2023 Asia Cup at a neutral venue instead of Pakistan could affect the country’s visit to India.
