‘But they are refusing…’ – Venkatesh Prasad’s befitting reply to Javed Miandad for latter’s ‘go to hell’ statement
The Asia Cup 2023 saga is ongoing ever since Jay Shah, the president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) announced that the tournament will be shifted to a neutral venue. The Indian cricket board is firm in its opinion to not travel to Pakistan citing security reasons and the ongoing political rift between the two countries.
A few days ago, reports emerged claiming that the ACC meeting between Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi and the Indian cricket board did not go according to plans. That being said, anguished by the reports, former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad said that India can go to hell if they do not want to come to play in their country.
“India can go to hell if they don’t want to come to Pakistan to play cricket,” Miandad was quoted as saying. Venkatesh Prasad, the former Indian pacer, hit back by saying that they refuse to go to hell and notably, Prasad has been giving it back to those who are against India through his social media accounts.
Here is Venkatesh Prasad’s tweet in reply to Javed Miandad:

We would have seen this happen many times, right?: Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin, the Indian veteran spinner, will take part in the four-match Test series against Australia and the allrounder opened up on Miandad’s opinion on his YouTube channel. Saying that the Indians have heard such comments for a long time now, the Indian spinner was happy to ignore the comment from the Pakistani cricketer.
“But we would have seen this happen many times, right? When we say the Asia Cup won’t go to their place, they will say that they will also not come to our place,” Ashwin was quoted as saying on his YouTube channel. With things not well between the PCB chairman and the Indian cricket board, it remains to be seen if the tournament would be moved to a neutral venue. Ashwin, on the other hand, suggested that the tournament could be moved to Sri Lanka given that it is the United Arab Emirates who have been hosting it for a while.
