IND vs PAK: The Asia Cup 2023 hosting dispute between BCCI and PCB seems to be resolved to a great extent, but in the meantime the rhetoric is also continuing. Pakistan is going to host the Asia Cup, but still the Indian team will not play any match in Pakistan. The matches of the Indian team will be organized at some other place. In such a situation, former Pak cricketer Imran Nazir has said that the Indian team is not coming to Pakistan because of the fear of defeat, not because of security.
Team India last visited Pakistan in 2006
Indian team last visited Pakistan in the year 2006. Then Team India had lost the Test series but had won the ODI series. After this, after the 26/11 attack in Mumbai, the Indian team stopped touring Pakistan. However, after this the Pakistan team definitely toured India twice. The last bilateral series was played between India and Pakistan in 2012/13. Since then, in the last decade, these two teams face each other only in Asia Cup, Champions Trophy or World Cup.
‘India cannot tolerate defeat’
Imran Nazir says, ‘People want to watch India-Pakistan match because its excitement level is different. The whole world knows this thing. As a cricketer, we also feel that Indo-Pak matches should keep happening to take cricket everywhere. We have been playing matches with each other in the past as well. Both the teams are very balanced but Indians cannot tolerate defeat. This is a game, some you will win and some you will lose.’
