Pakistan could boycott the 2023 World Cup


Probably, Pakistan will not participate in the 2023 ODI World Cup in India due to a political statement released by Jay Shah, who is playing the role of BCCI secretary.

India won’t travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup next year and will instead push for a neutral venue

Despite the reservations about Pakistan visiting India for the ODI World Cup in 2023, Pakistan should force the ACC or ICC to host the Asia Cup in Pakistan.
