A lot of chaos is going on ever since BCCI secretary Jay Shah stated that India would not be travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup next year. The president of the Asian Cricket Council has also confirmed that the event will take place at a neutral venue. However, after that, a statement came from the Pakistan Cricket Board stating that the decision was made without even consulting the ACC members and the board has also said that it could affect Pakistan’s participation in the 2023 World Cup which is scheduled to be played in India. And, like everyone, India captain Rohit Sharma also shared his views when he was asked a question regarding the issue in the press conference he attended on Saturday.
The veteran has said that the Indian team is currently focusing on T20 World Cup and their upcoming match against Pakistan on October 23. However, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team starts its T20 World Cup campaign in Australia with a highly-anticipated match against arch-rivals Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
“My take is let’s focus on this World Cup, because it is important for us. We are not worried about what’s going to happen later. There is no point thinking about it, the BCCI will make decisions on that. We are just thinking about being focused on tomorrow’s game,” said Rohit.
However, India will then play the Netherlands on October 27 before taking on South Africa on October 30. Their next two matches will be against Bangladesh on November 2 and Zimbabwe on November 6 respectively as well.
