Moreover, he said that their Asia Cup participation will also be impossible if they fail to participate in the World Cup. “We will not be able to take part in Asian tournament if we do not take part in the World Cup qualifier,” he said.
The skipper revealed that no player is finalized who will be a part of the team in the mega event. He was quick to add that all countries have prepared themselves for the mega event. “Countries have finalized their squads and we are still struck in controversies,” he added.
