Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raja has warned that if India pull out of the Asia Cup, the Pakistan cricket team will also not travel to India to participate in the 50-over World Cup next year.

Ramiz Raja has given a massive statement and said that India can play World Cup without Pakistan if they don't participate in the continental tournament.

"If Pakistan doesn't take part in the World Cup scheduled in India next year, who will watch it? We have a clear stand: If the Indian team comes here then we will go for the World Cup. If they don't come then they can play the World Cup without us," said Raja.

"We will adopt an aggressive approach. Our team is showing performance. I've always said we need to improve the economy of Pakistan cricket, and that can only happen when we perform well. In the 2021 T20 World Cup, we beat India. We beat India in the T20 Asia Cup. In one year, the Pakistan cricket team defeated a billion-dollar economy team twice," he added.

The next edition of Asia Cup is set to be held in Pakistan however, BCCI has already confirmed its stands that the Indian players won't travel to Pakistan.

This statement gained a lot of criticism between the two arch-rival cricket Boards.
