BCCI hits out at Asia Cup organisers after finding out they’ve scheduled a match with Pakistan

(Disclaimer: this is a work of fiction. Learn to take a joke; you’ll live longer.)

MUMBAI/DUBAI – The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has severely criticised the organisers of next month’s Asia Cup, after finding that that an encounter between Pakistan and India has been scheduled.

The 14th edition of Asia Cup, which was scheduled to see an India-Pakistan clash on September 19, now is under jeopardy after the BCCI said it doesn’t like the composition of the tournament.

While speaking to The Dependent, a senior BCCI official said, “The scheduling is mindless. There appears to be zero application of mind.”

“How can you accept a scenario where India plays a game against Pakistan in the Asia Cup!” the official said.

“This is unacceptable and has to be revisited. Maybe for the organisers it is just a money-spinning game but for us it is important that we play the right countries.”

Speaking to The Dependent former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag also criticised the organisers.

“It is wrong to have scheduled the matches for India in such a manner,” he said. “There are so many other countries in Asia. Of all the countries why does India have to Pakistan?”
