India vs Pakistan: Asia Cup 2023 hosting is likely to be taken from Pakistan. Pakistan protested strongly in the Asian Cricket Council meeting.
Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled to be held in Pakistan. But now there is a possibility that Pakistan will be relieved of the responsibility of hosting the tournament. Board of Control for Cricket in India Secretary Jai Shah is in Bahrain for the Asian Cricket Council meeting. Pakistan strongly opposed the talk of grabbing the host of this meeting. However, according to the report, the Asia Cup is yet to be decided on the new venue. According to the news coming in the media, it seems that this time Asia Cup can be held in UAE. An official announcement is yet to be made in this regard.
PCB’s hopes on Asia Cup
PCB has high hopes on Asia Cup. But now all hopes are dashed. As per ‘Sports Talk’ report, Asia Cup 2023 has been snatched away from Pakistan. Now the tournament can be held in UAE. In connection with this, the name of another venue has also surfaced. According to the report, Sri Lanka may also become the venue. However, no official announcement has been made regarding this yet. However, the Asian Cricket Council may announce it soon. Jaisha went to Bahrain for SCC meeting.
It is noteworthy that the Asia Cup will be held in the UAE for the first time. India won it. India defeated Sri Lanka in the final of the 1984 tournament. If we talk about hosting Pakistan, Asia Cup 2008 was held. The last match of this tournament being held in Pakistan was between Sri Lanka and India. Sri Lanka won this. The important thing is that in the history of Asia Cup, Pakistan has hosted only once. The tournament which was supposed to be held in 2023 was shifted from Pakistan.
