Shoaib Akhtar : T20 world cup and Asia cup have been sacrificed for IPL

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar believes that both these tournaments could have been held, but both these tournaments have been postponed to organize the Indian Premier League (IPL).

This year, two big cricket events Asia Cup and ICC T20 World Cup have been postponed. Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar believes that both these tournaments could have been held, but both these tournaments have been postponed to organize the Indian Premier League (IPL). Akhtar said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been adept at proving its supremacy at such a big level.

On live cricket, Akhtar said, ‘What are you talking about, has the BCCI not shown its supremacy till now? What does it mean that we will not let this happen, who are we? The weak have never been supported in the world. The Asia Cup could have been done for sure, it would have been a great opportunity to have a match between India and Pakistan. There are many reasons behind this, but I don’t want to get into it. T20 World Cup could also be held. But I have already said that they do not allow this to happen. IPL should not be harmed, World Cup should go to hell.

The Asia Cup was to be played in September, while the T20 World Cup was to be played between October-November. The Asia Cup was to be hosted by Pakistan this time, but India refused to play the match in Pakistan, after which the Asia Cup was to be played on the neutral venue. The T20 World Cup was to be played in Australia this year. With the postponement of these two tournaments, the BCCI has got a window for the IPL to be held from September to November. The IPL may be held in the UAE this year. The BCCI has also sought permission from the government for the IPL to be held in the UAE.
