The decision about the location of the 2023 Asia Cup is expected to be made soon. PCB sources claim that Pakistan may continue to host, but that the United Arab Emirates may take over hosting for India’s matches. In the event that this scenario materialises, India would likely make it to the final, which will also be held in the UAE.
Shah, who serves as the ACC head, declared in October 2022 that India would not travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup. During their first formal meeting on February 4 in Bahrain, PCB Chairman Najam Sethi and BCCI Secretary Jay Shah discussed the Asia Cup 2023 venue, although no decisions were taken at that time.
Sethi announced to the media on Thursday that further discussions regardingsince the matter is currently unresolved, outside of an ICC meeting.
What can I say about what happened at the Asian Cricket Council’s board meeting? Sethi told reporters that there has been no decision when asked if Pakistan would host the competition in September.
A number of games will likely be played in the United Arab Emirates, where India may play all of its games, including the title game, if necessary. Pakistan will likely continue to host the Asia Cup.
According to the source, Sethi stated at the ACC conference that PCB wants to host the tournament and some of the games at home.
UAE is the country with the three venues Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.leading candidate to host the event, while the choice has not yet been decided.
The new location will not be implemented until March. Nevertheless, you can be sure that the event will need to be changed because India won’t be travelling to Pakistan, a top BCCI official who was apprised of the development told PTI.
