Lahore. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) President Najam Sethi has given a new statement regarding the Asia Cup to be held in Pakistan this year and the ODI World Cup to be held in India. Talking about ‘clarifying the situation soon’, Najam Sethi said that he is considering all the options. Sethi said that he would raise these issues in the next meeting of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and the International Cricket Council (ICC).
He said in the press conference on Monday, “We have complex issues in front of us, but when I go to the ACC and ICC meetings, I will have to keep all options open. However, we should clarify the situation now.

He said that there has been no change in India’s stand of not sending its team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup. The PCB, however, is adamant that if the Indian team does not tour their country for the Asia Cup, then Pakistan will also have to think about not playing the World Cup in India.

He said, “I have kept my options open because when all the teams are coming to Pakistan and there is no security issue then why is India worried about security? I will tell this in the upcoming meetings that if India has a problem then our team is also concerned about security during the World Cup in India. The ICC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Executive Board are meeting this month. The meeting will be attended by Sethi and other officials representing the PCB.
“Obviously we don’t support this stand (India) because we want to organize the Asia Cup and remember it’s not just about the Asia Cup and the World Cup, it’s about the 2025 tournament in Pakistan,” he said. It’s also about the Champions Trophy.” Najam Sethi said that before going to this meeting, he would also like to know the opinion of the government on this issue.
