I acknowledge that India won’t come on the grounds that the public authority will not permit them to come: Ramiz Raja

“Why give it to us in any case and afterward offer that large number of expressions about India not heading out to Pakistan? I acknowledge that India won’t come on the grounds that the public authority will not permit them to come – fine. However, to remove the Asia Cup from the host on that premise isn’t correct,” the PCB boss added.
“The two sheets need to deal with regardless of whether we need to play one another. Pakistan is willing, however they quote political obstruction. You can’t work when there is political obstruction. They quote the public authority doesn’t permit it, so that kills the discussion. There is no great explanation for why India couldn’t come to Pakistan and Pakistan go to India,” said the 1992 World Cup champ.
