Board sources claim that while Pakistan may continue to host the Asia Cup, India may be given the opportunity to play part of its games in the United Arab Emirates (PCB). If India advances to the championship match, the UAE would also host it, according to a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) source. On February 4, Najam Sethi of the PCB asked that the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) convene an emergency meeting in Bahrain after the continental body released its schedule and Pakistan was not chosen as the tournament’s hosts.
More discussions on the hosting of the Asia Cup ODI tournament will take place outside of an ICC meeting next month, according to Sethi, who was speaking to the media on Thursday.
What can I say about what happened at the Asian Cricket Council’s board meeting? There was no resolution. Sethi told reporters that Pakistan will not be hosting the event in September.
According to reliable sources with knowledge of the situation, India may play all of its games, including the final, in the UAE even though Pakistan will continue to host the Asia Cup (if India qualifies for the final).
