(Web Desk) – Legendary Pakistani batsman, Javed Miandad, urged ICC to stop all the playing countries from touring India due to ongoing violent protests in the country owing to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
This scathing attack by Miandad came after witnessing the on-going CAA protests across India.
With Test cricket returning to Pakistan after a decade, which saw the home side beat Sri Lanka 1-0 in the two-Test series; the Pakistan Cricket Board has been inviting other teams as well to play matches in their home ground. They are however having a tussle with Bangladesh board, whose players are not ready to play Tests in Pakistan.
However, the PCB chief Ehsan Mani recently stirred a hornet’s nest by claiming that instead of Pakistan being unsafe for cricket, it should be its neighbour India that other teams should vary of touring, given the ongoing protests due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The controversial act has become the focal point with students and political parties countrywide coming out on roads and some individuals damaging public property as well.
Now Mani has got a supporting voice in former Pakistan captain and one of the greatest batsmen of all time, Javed Miandad. “My message to ICC, please stop all the playing countries [from] touring India. Now you can see, now [we] will see the justice from ICC, what are they going to do and what they are going to say to the world,” Miandad was quoted as saying by PakPassion.net.
This scathing attack on India by Miandad came after witnessing the on-going CAA protests across the nation. “ICC, come forward and tell all the world, all the people who are members with the ICC, they must tell all the countries [to] stop playing any games in India because India is [no longer] a safe country. Other countries are better than India because there they are fighting with the people, their own people. Look at that, what’s going on? Must take action,” he further added.
