The Asia Cup is scheduled to take place in September in Pakistan, ahead of the ODI World Cup in India
Former Indian cricketer, Aakash Chopra, has issued warning to Pakistan that they will have to face grave consequences if they boycott the upcoming 2023 World Cup in India.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has stated that they will not tour Pakistan, but no official announcement has been made by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
An emergency meeting was held in Bahrain last week, which decided that the final call on the venue would be made in March.
According to media reports, Pakistan has also said they won't travel to India for the World Cup, if India doesn’t come to Pakistan.
"The Pakistan guys are saying that if we don't go there for the Asia Cup, they won't play the Asia Cup at all and that they will come to our home to play the World Cup as well, that they will not come to India. Can that happen?" Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
"I can give it to you in writing, whether the Asia Cup happens or not, it is 120% guaranteed that Pakistan will come here and play the World Cup as well. If Pakistan boycott the World Cup, the repercussions are going to be dire. That is my opinion," he added.
