Srinagar: Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has strongly reacted to Former PCB chief Najam Sethi’s statement that India is afraid to play against Pakistan.
Reacting strongly response to Sethi’s statement that India was avoiding Pakistan as they are afraid to face defeat, Harbhajan said that Sethi should be provided with historical records.
“Don’t know what Najam Sethi is smoking nowadays. I don’t know how is he saying that they were the favourites or India does not want to play Pakistan,” Harbhajan said on Sports Today.
“Please someone give him the whole record where India have beaten them more number of times whenever they have played against each other. This is baseless kind of a thing for him, with the kind of stature that he holds at this moment for Pakistan cricket”.
“He says, India does not want to play Pakistan because India is scared. India is never scared to play anyone. Don’t know where this is coming from. They needed to sit with the Asian Cricket Council and see where the tournament is going to be held”.
“Whether the weather forecast was right or not. Boss, come and play us wherever you want, we will beat you.”
Najam Sethi had questioned the decision to host the India-Pakistan match in Colombo, given the predicted rainfall during the Super Four clash on September 10.
“BCCI/ACC informed PCB today that they had decided to shift next India-Pak match from Colombo to Hambantota because of rain forecasts. Within one hour they changed their mind and announced Colombo as the venue. What’s going on? Is India afraid to play and lose to Pakistan? Look at the rain forecast!” Sethi posted on X account.
