On 23 July 2023, Pakistan A defeated India A by a massive margin of 128 runs in the final of the ACC Men’s Emerging Asia Cup in Colombo. But, after that match, fans slammed the Men in Green for playing many senior-aged players and players with experience in playing international matches.

However, many Pakistan fans and journalists also came up and slammed the Indian fans on social media. Now, Mohammad Haris (skipper of that side) came up and took a dig at India by claiming that they did not have any unfair advantage due to their "seniority." He even said that they did not ask the Indian Cricket Board to send kids to the tournament.

Haris said: "People are saying that Pakistan sent a team with many seniors. We did not ask them to send little kids to the tournament. They say that we had international experience in our team. How much international matches have we played? Saim has played 5, I have played 6. Those guys (India players) have played 260 IPL matches." India had all young players who generally gets to play for their respective franchises in the IPL. While Pakistan had players like Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Saim Ayub.

After winning the final, Haris said: "Firstly, I would like to congratulate all of Pakistan. This is what happens, when you score big runs in a final, the opposition comes under pressure and then if you get back-to-back wickets it gets tough for them. We had tried different combinations in the last four-five matches, tried different players, and it worked well for us. We had shown the videos of the Indian batters to our bowlers. Sai Sudharsan and Abhishek were their main players and we thought that if we could get them out early, it would help us. I am very happy with how the boys are motivated. We have the Asia Cup also coming up and the World Cup too after that. Sri Lanka is a tough place to play spin. So it was good preparation."
