Asia cup 2023: Now Pakistan will bow down… BCCI will decide the fate of PCB, meeting called for Asia Cup

New Delhi: Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah is in Bahrain to attend an emergency meeting of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). The meeting, called at the request of PCB chairman Najam Sethi, will decide the fate of Pakistan’s Asia Cup hosting rights. If BCCI sources are to be believed then there is no or absolutely no chance of Pakistan hosting the Asia Cup in September.

The tournament is expected to be held either in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) retaining the hosting rights, or Sri Lanka could be another option. A BCCI source said, “Jay is currently in Bahrain for the ACC meeting. BCCI will not change its stand. We will not go to Pakistan as we have not got approval from the government.

Understandably, the recent Peshawar bombings have raised security concerns about the resumption of cricket tournaments in Pakistan. In December last year, ACC chairman Shah released the schedule of the continental tournament and the venue of the Asia Cup was not mentioned. After this, Sethi accused Shah of taking a unilateral decision.

Asia Cup can be organized in UAE

The BCCI had already made it clear that Team India will not tour Pakistan under any circumstances for the Asia Cup. At the same time, the Pakistani Cricket Board is adamant on organizing the tournament here. In such a situation, the Asia Cup can be organized at a neutral venue.

Last year also the Asia Cup was hosted by Sri Lanka but due to the situation there, the tournament was shifted to UAE. In such a situation, there is every possibility that the Asia Cup will be held in the UAE and not in Pakistan.
