The 2023 Asia Cup has been a topic of debate since India refused to travel to Pakistan to play in the tournament due to political tensions between both countries. However, it is likely that tournament will be hosted by Pakistan and India’s matches will be held in UAE or Sri Lanka.

Najam Sethi, Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee, held separate meetings with officials from India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and the UAE to discuss various options, as the involvement of India is crucial for generating revenue for the broadcasters.

India are ensured that they will not travel to Pakistan under any circumstance. Reportedly, former Pakistani batter Imran Nazir took a dig at India stating that they are just afraid to lose against Pakistan that’s why they are traveling to the country. He was quoted as saying “Harne se darr lagta hai, thappar se darr nai lagta.”

‘I was given poison’ – Nazir

Recently, Nazir also made a shocking claim that he was poisoned at the peak of his career, and also revealed that the former skipper Shahid Afridi spent almost 40-50 lakh to help him.

“When I recently got treated, including MRI and all, a statement was issued that I was given poison – Mercury. It is a slow poison; it reaches your joint and damages them. For 8-10 years, all my joints were treated. All my joints had gotten damaged and for this reason, I suffered for almost 6-7 years. But even then, I prayed to God, ‘Please don’t make me bedridden’. And thankfully, that never happened,” Nazir said on the Nadir Ali podcast.

“I have spent my entire life’s saving on my treatment. In the end, there was a final treatment, in which Shahid Afridi helped me a lot. He helped me in my time of need. I had nothing left when I met Shahid bhai. Within a day, my doctor received the money in his account. He said ‘No matter how much money is needed, my brother should get well’. He spent around 40-50 lakh. I was happy that he had told his manager ‘Don’t even ask about him. Keep sending how much money he needs’. The credit even goes to my doctor that he never tried to cheat me. He stuck to the amount that was required,” he further added.
