BCCI President Roger Binny has responded to claims of "unfair" favoritism given to Team India during the ongoing T20 World Cup, stating that the ICC treats all teams equally.

India defeated Bangladesh in a last-ball thriller by 5 runs via the DLS method on Wednesday (November 02).

After the match, however, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi alleged that the ICC is determined to use all means necessary to see the Indian team advance to the semi-final of the ongoing showpiece event.

"Not fair. I don't think we're favored by ICC. Everyone gets same treatment. No way in which you can say that. What do we get different from other teams? India is a big powerhouse in cricket but we're all treated the same," Binny was quoted as saying by ANI.

Binny went on to say that the BCCI cannot determine by itself whether the team will go to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup or not. He continued by saying that a decision will be made in this regard if the governments of both nations approved.

"That is not in BCCI's hands. That has to be done from the Government's side. They give the clearances” he stated.

The Men in Blue will face Zimbabwe in their next T20 World Cup clash at MCG on Sunday (November 06).
