In the viral video, Ashraf said, “We gave these contracts to our players with love and affection. Never in the history of Pakistan, such an amount of money has been given to players. My aim was to keep the players’ morale high as they go to countries, the enemy country (‘Dushman Mulk’) for competitions.”

PCB boss’ controversial comments have landed him in a soup as being a respresentative of Pakistan cricket, he has called neigbouring India ‘A Dushman’.

An X user from Pakistan said that it is worst to see a Pakistani cricket official use such a word while the team has landed on Indian shores. “While team received all the love in Hyderabad, its the worst an official could utter.
