ICC & BCCI On PCB: Big blow to Pakistan Cricket Board. Actually, ICC and BCCI have rejected the request of Pakistan Cricket Board. The Pakistan Cricket Board had placed a demand before the ICC and BCI that the World Cup 2023 be played at some other venue instead of Chennai instead of Pakistan. Pakistan and Australia are to be played in Bangalore, while Babar Azam’s team will play the match against Afghanistan at Chepauk ground in Chennai, but PCB wants to avoid Chennai’s spin friendly wicket. Because of this, PCB had placed a demand in front of ICC and BCI that their matches should be played at some other venue.
ICC and BCCI rejected PCB’s request outright
However, a meeting was held in this regard on Tuesday. After this meeting, ICC and BCCI have rejected PCB’s request outright. Along with this, PCB has been clearly told that the venue will not be changed. The match between Pakistan and Afghanistan will be played at the Chepauk ground in Chennai. Actually, spin bowlers have been getting help on this ground. There is no doubt that Afghanistan has the best spin bowling attack in the world. Because of this, the Pakistani team is shying away from playing on the ground in Chennai.
Significantly, the World Cup 2023 will be organized on Indian soil. For a long time, there is no talk between the Pakistan Cricket Board and the BCCI on many issues including the venue. At the same time, now ICC and BCCI have rejected PCB’s request outright. That is, now the match between Pakistan and Afghanistan will be played at Chepauk ground in Chennai.
