Confusion persists regarding Asia Cup 2023, now these two countries have increased the difficulties of Pakistan
According to Pakistan’s Geo News, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Cricket Board have supported the Asia Cup to be played outside Pakistan. Both the countries are keen to get the Asia Cup out of Pakistan.
There is confusion regarding the Asia Cup 2023. Pakistan is hosting the Asia Cup. However, India has already made it clear that its players will not tour the neighboring country due to security reasons. After this it was believed that the matches against India would be played in some other country and the remaining matches could be held in Pakistan. But now it seems that the situation may get even more difficult for Pakistan. It is reported that Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Cricket Board have refused to go to Pakistan. However, there is no official confirmation regarding this yet.
According to Pakistan’s Geo News, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Cricket Board have supported the Asia Cup to be played outside Pakistan. Both the countries are keen to get the Asia Cup out of Pakistan. If both of them remain adamant, then somewhere it will be difficult for Pakistan to get the Asia Cup on its land. Once again there is a possibility that the Asia Cup can be played at a neutral venue. At present, the United Arab Emirates is leading the race where the 2022 Asia Cup took place. The report further claimed that both the cricket boards, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have shown interest in hosting the tournament this year
Earlier, Najam Sethi, chairman of the managing committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board, had clearly said that we will not let the hosting of the Asia Cup go at any cost. Najam Sethi clearly said that we cannot give the responsibility of organizing the tournament to anyone else. We have made preparations to conduct the Asia Cup on the basis of hybrid model. He said that it is very good if the Indian team comes to Pakistan. If it does not come, then comparisons can be made on neutral revenue. He also told that its information and complete schedule has been given to the Asian Cricket Council.
