The hosting of the Asia Cup 2023 has been the news for a long time, with the ongoing tussle between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Pakistan had proposed a hybrid model where the Men in Blue would play their matches outside Pakistan, but it has been rejected.
If the PCB doesn’t its stance, the Continental Cup is likely to get cancelled.
On the other hand, PCB doesn’t want to host the tournament at a neutral venue, a move proposed by the BCCI. Sri Lanka and the UAE were suggested as possible venues, but Pakistan has firmly rejected the suggestion.
BCCI is ready for the cancellation of the tournament and is reportedly looking to organize a new five-nation tournament that could take place in the window that would be vacated by the Asia Cup, given that it is cancelled in the future.
