PCB calls for U-19 Asia Cup to be moved from India

The veteran cricketer, who also coached the national team thrice, said it was useless begging India to play bilateral cricket.

Miandad pointed out that boycott of cricket matches with India by Pakistan would also make the global community realize the "injustice" that is done by Indians to Pakistani cricket.

"It is time we responded with bricks to stones".

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday said that the upcoming U-19 Asia Cup should be played in a neutral venue rather than India. "We don't want to face any inconvenience ahead of the event".

Sethi went about the task of repairing the damage by engaging with the Big Three nations.Many ill-informed critics lambasted his move but gradually they realised that from a position of isolation Pakistan had re-emerged just below the Big Three besides gathering an all important seat in the ICC Executive Committee.Sethi believed in having cordial relations with fellow ICC members and went about the task of convincing Test nations to tour Pakistan.

While a lot of attempts have been made, the future of resumption of India versus Pakistan bilateral cricket ties seems bleak.

Pakistan blamed a delay in visas for their non-participation in the Junior World Cup in India in 2016, while earlier this year their squash players had to opt out of an event in India due to visa glitches. However, India's government had refused to play with Pakistan if the terrorism from the other side of the border did not stop.

"The same money, 100 crores rupees or more, can be pumped into our cricket infrastructure because no one will listen to us as India is very influential and strong in the ICC level".

Speaking exclusively to Dawn, Khan said, "The biggest failure for me is to not restore the bilateral series between Pakistan and India. We have nothing to lose", Miandad said.

"We called it a good gesture but they took advantage of it and earned millions and in return we got nothing". "We have lost a lot of money in millions of dollars since India's refusal to play with us and remember we have not had global cricket in Pakistan since 2009". He also asserted that Pakistan had nothing to lose by doing so.
