BCCI vs PCB: The relations between two Asian cricketing giants India and Pakistan have become tense and over the past two days, plenty of things have been written and said. Speculations were rife that the Indian cricket team wanted to travel to Pakistan for the next edition of the Asia Cup, but things took a different turn on October 18, 2022, when BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) secretary Jay Shah came out and said that the Indian team wouldn't travel to Pakistan and the Asian Cricket Council will look for a neutral venue to host the event.

Weighing into the matter, the newly elected BCCI President has come out and has cleared his stand on the matter. 

Binny further said:

That isn't our call. We can't say where our team has to go. We need to take clearance from Govt if we leave the country, or if other countries come here. We can't take that decision on our own, we've to rely on govt.

Pakistan on the other hand chose to react on the matter as sources close to the Pakistan Cricket Board and Ramiz Raja said that they are ready to take extreme measures as far as the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) membership is considered. The PCB is hell-bent on pulling out of the ODI World Cup that will be played in India. On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, the Pakistan Cricket Board churned out a press release where Pakistan strongly condemned India's act. The PCB denied having any knowledge about the issue and also stressed on the fact that BCCI was acting against the spirit of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). The PCB also called for an emergency meeting of the Asian Cricket Council.
