There Was No Discussion Of Getting Government Approval For The Asia Cup, Says The Pakistan Board

The debate on who will have the right to host the Asia Cup in 2023 is still ongoing, and there has been no progress made towards reaching a consensus regarding the location of the competition on the continent.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has expressed its reluctance to travel with its squad to Pakistan despite the fact that Pakistan has the rights to host the tournament. According to reports, the decision has been pushed back to the month of March while the talks continue.

However, another source stated that all of the participating nations in the Asia Cup had been requested to acquire government authorization in order to travel to Pakistan for the event. This was included in the first article.

On the other hand, the PCB has shown that it is operating at full capacity, which indicates that such a discussion did not take place during the meeting.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a response on the so-called study in which they used strong language and implied that none of the members had expressed any intention to seek government authorization for their participation in the Asia Cup in Pakistan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board said the following in their statement: “According to a report published by Cricinfo with the headline “Decision on Asia Cup venue postponed to March 2023,” the following was stated: “In addition, all ACC members are believed to have been asked to seek the positions of their own governments on whether or not their teams can travel to Pakistan.”

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) would want to make it clear that none of these issues were discussed during the discussion, and no member gave any indication that they intended to seek official clearance in order to play in Pakistan.

Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have been to Pakistan in recent years, with Sri Lanka going there in 2017 and 2019 and Bangladesh in 2020.

Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka have all confirmed that they will be touring Pakistan as part of the 2023-2027 Future Tours Programme (FTP), which has been agreed upon and declared by all ICC Members.”

According to a report published by PTI, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is likely to move the Asia Cup away from Pakistan and make a decision in March regarding an alternative location.

However, PCB president Najam Sethi is said to have warned Jay Shah that his country “will not forego the hosting rights of either the Asia Cup or the Champions Trophy in 2025” in response to this suggestion. [Cricket]

In addition to that, he went on to say the following: “If the BCCI is unable to gain clearance from its government for the Asia Cup, Pakistan would also not travel to India for the (One-Day International) World Cup.”

The stalemate on the issue is anticipated to be broken in the month of March, and the competition is anticipated to take place in September of this year.
