Pakistan Will Face Heavy Losses If They Boycott The World Cup

“Pakistan Will Face Heavy Losses If They Choose To Boycott The World Cup” – Danish Kaneria

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has warned that they will not take part in the ODI World Cup 2023 in India if the Indian team does not come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023 in September. Danish Kaneria, a former legspinner, has stated that Pakistan cannot afford to miss the World Cup in India later this year, even though India is not travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup.

Due to current diplomatic tensions, the BCCI Secretary and ACC President, Jay Shah, has stated that Indian players will not travel to Pakistan to compete in the Asia Cup, which is expected to be held at a neutral venue after being shifted from its original Pakistani host. This will be the first time the tournament has been hosted away from Pakistan in 14 years.

Pakistan Just Can’t Afford To Miss Out – Danish Kaneria

In a video on his YouTube channel, Danish Kaneria stated that Pakistan would be unable to bear the consequences of not participating in the ICC event in India.

Ramiz Raja has made some bold statements, however, it is uncertain if the PCB has the power to stand firm and refuse to participate in the World Cup. The amount of money that is put in the tournament, plus the marketing it brings to India and Pakistan, means that they can‘t afford to miss it. It is likely that the PCB would have to succumb to the ICC and agree to take part in the World Cup.

If Pakistan decides to not participate in the World Cup, they will suffer substantial damage. As the tournament is held by the International Cricket Council, Pakistan will not receive any profits either. Additionally, the reputation of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), a wellknown brand in the cricketing world, will be negatively affected.

It will be interesting to observe what the ACC decides about the Asia Cup venue at their concluding gathering in March. It has been 15 years since India went to its neighboring countries; their last trip to Pakistan for the Asia Cup was in 2008, and their bilateral series nearly came to a standstill after the tragic Mumbai attacks of 26/11.
