The age-old rivalry between former Indian fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad and Pakistani batting great Javed Miandad heated up. Venkatesh Prasad revives his rivalry with Javed Miandad with a savage reply to the latter’s ‘India can go to hell’ remark.
During a public event in Pakistan Miandad was asked several questions about his stand on India refusing to play in Pakistan. Miandad was asked what he thinks about India not coming to play Asia Cup 2023 in Pakistan. He said “India can go to hell if they don’t wanna come here we have to do our work rest of the things depends on ICC”
Miandad also criticized ICC for not punishing BCCI
The former Pakistani batter also asked ICC and ACC to debar BCCI if they refuse to visit Pakistan for major events. He added, “ICC should tackle these situations on their own and if they can’t deal with them then they are for no good”.
The 65-year-old was asked about his opinion on whether Pakistan should travel to India for the World Cup 2023. He answered “I’ve always backed Pakistan. And you know that I don’t leave spare India whenever an issue arises. But the thing is we need to look at our part. And we should fight for it. We don’t care because we are getting to host our cricket.

Venkatesh referred to Pakistan as hell in his witty tweet. The duo played against each other on numerous occasions back in the 90s and 80s but the age-old rivalry is still alive.
ICC and ACC to make a final decision on the hosting rights
BCCI and PCB both have strong stands against each other in the ICC meetings. Pakistan wants ICC to take the hosting right of the ODI World Cup away from India. On the other hand, BCCI is refusing to tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023.
