The BCCI remains adamant that the Indian team will not travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup. The ACC is reportedly planning to shift the tournament to an ‘alternate venue’.
The contestation over hosting rights of the Asia Cup 2023 continues, with there still be no agreement over where the mainland event will take place. Though Pakistan hold the hosting rights for the event, the Board of Control for Cricket in India( BCCI) is unintentional to shoot its platoon to the nation. As the addresses continue, the decision has reportedly been laid over to March. A report, still, also suggested that all the sharing nations( in the Asia Cup) have been asked to seek government concurrence to travel to Pakistan for the event. still, the PCB has come out firing on all cylinders, suggesting no similar talk was held during the match.
Issuing a strong- articulated statement on the’ report’, PCB suggested that none of the members have indicated any intention to seek government concurrence for their participation in the Asia Cup in Pakistan.
In its statement, Pakistan Cricket Board wrote in its story under the caption Decision on Asia Cup venue laid over to March 2023, stated’ In addition, all ACC members are believed to have been asked to seek their own government’s positions on whether their brigades can travel to Pakistan.’
A final decision on whether Pakistan will host the 2023 Asia Cup is now anticipated in March, after an Asian Cricket Council( ACC) meeting in Bahrain failed to reach a advance. They will meet again in a month’s time, around the coming set of ICC meetings.
The query around the 2023 Asia Cup began in October when the ACC chairman, and BCCI clerk, Jay Shah said it’ll be held in a neutral venue because India can not travel to Pakistan.
The PCB took particular exception to that and ESPN Cricinfo understands that on Saturday their principal Najam Sethi told Shah that if India do not play in Pakistan, Pakistan will consider not playing in India for the 2023 World Cup.
This has led to the impasse which needs reconsidering in March when the ICC and ACC meetings take place one after the other. The issues across events, in the PCB’s views, are the same, whether it’s the Asia Cup, the 2023 World Cup or the 2025 titleholders jewel, to be offered in Pakistan. Depending on what happens in those March meetings and the PCB is likely to go by again with the same station- a decision may be left to the Pakistan government to take a call on.
In addition, all ACC members are believed to have been asked to seek their own government’s positions on whether their brigades could travel to Pakistan. * The PCB, still, clarified with a statement on Sunday, that” no similar matters were raised in the meeting, nor did any member indicate any intention to seek government concurrence for playing in Pakistan”.
The PCB added” Sri Lanka has lately visited Pakistan in 2017 and 2019, while Bangladesh has voyaged Pakistan in 2020. In the 2023- 2027 unborn tenures Programme (FTP), which has been agreed and blazoned by all ICC Members, Afghanistan Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have verified their tenures to Pakistan.”
After times of insulation following the 2009 attack on Sri Lanka’s platoon machine in Lahore, Pakistan has returned to hosting transnational justice regularly over the last three times, with nearly all full members( other than India) visiting the country for red- and white- ball justice.
Pakistan- India ties have deteriorated over the times as a result of stormy political relations between the two countries. India and Pakistan haven’t played each other in a bilateral series since 2012- 13, when Pakistan voyaged India for a limited- overs series. Their hassles have been limited to ICC and ACC events, and while the Indian men’s platoon has not played any match in Pakistan since 2008, Pakistan last travelled to India for the 2016 T20 World Cup.
The PCB wishes to clarify that no similar matters were raised in the meeting, nor did any member indicate any intention to seek government concurrence for playing in Pakistan. Sri Lanka has lately visited Pakistan in 2017 and 2019, while Bangladesh has voyaged Pakistan in 2020.
In the 2023- 2027 unborn tenures Programme( FTP), which has been agreed and blazoned by all ICC Members, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have verified their tenures to Pakistan.”
As per a report in PTI, The ACC is anticipated to shift the Asia Cup from Pakistan and decide on an alternate venue in March. On this suggestion, still, PCB principal Najam Sethi has reportedly told Jay Shah that his country” will not abstain the hosting rights of either the Asia Cup or the titleholders jewel in 2025″. On top of that he also added” If the BCCI can not get concurrence from its government for the Asia Cup, Pakistan will also not travel to India for the( ODI) World Cup.” Know More Latest Cricket News…
