Pakistan should compete in the World Cup even if it is held in India: Misbah-ul-Haq. Pakistan will play their first match against the Netherlands on October 6.
Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has asked authorities not to mix cricket and politics and to enable the national squad to travel to India for the next One-Day International World Cup. He went on to suggest that the same thing never happens in other sports, and that cricket, too, should be treated similarly.
Notably, due to political concerns, India and Pakistan have not played bilateral cricket for almost ten years. India recently declined Pakistan’s invitation to the forthcoming Asia Cup. There has been much speculation over the Babar Azam-led side’s participation in the upcoming ODI World Cup.
Pakistan has yet to clear the air over their participation. Thus Misbah believes the team should fly to India and enjoy playing under pressure.
“If contacts between the two countries are possible in other sports, why not in cricket?” Why is cricket associate with political relations? It is unjust to deny people the opportunity to watch their teams compete against one another. It is a huge disservice to the fans who follow Pakistan and Indian cricket so closely.
“Certainly, Pakistan should play in the World Cup, even if it is in India. ” We have appreciate the pressure and crowds in India on numerous occasions because it motivates us, and the conditions in India fit us. “Our team has the ability to perform well in Indian conditions,” Misbah remarked, according to NDTV.

The former cricketer also added that the players should not be concerned with what is going on outside the stadium and should instead concentrate on winning the World Cup.
“They should not think about what is going on outside their sphere.” “Getting the playing XIs right at specific venues and against specific opposition is the key to doing well in the World Cup in India,” Misbah remarked.
