The chairman of the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) Zaka Ashraf has been surrounded by many controversies recently. The 71-year-old recently caught every headline after he referred to India as ‘dushman mulk’ (enemy nation).
“The fantastic reception of the Pakistan team in India for the World Cup proves how much love the people of both countries have for each other’s players. This love was evident by the reception arranged at the Hyderabad airport. I congratulate the Indians for arranging a reception of this kind,” Ashraf said in a statement released by the PCB.
India-Pakistan emerge as traditional rivals but not as enemies: Zaka Ashraf
“Whenever India and Pakistan step onto the cricket field, they emerge as traditional rivals but not as enemies. I hope that throughout the entire World Cup, Pakistan cricketers will receive the same warmth, and Indian fans will get to see the best cricket from Pakistan,” Ashraf said.
