According to reports, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is promptly addressing the matter of selecting a venue for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023, which is planned to take place in Pakistan.
The PCB and BCCI are engaged in detailed discussions to find a solution to the matter of India playing their matches in a location that is not home or away.
At a meeting held in Dubai, representatives from the PCB and BCCI explored the option of Pakistan serving as the host of the Asia Cup, with India playing their games in a location that is neither their home nor the opposition’s home ground.
Various potential locations are under consideration for India to play their scheduled matches, such as Oman, UAE, England, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. Nevertheless, a definitive verdict has not been reached at this time.
Previously, the President of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), Jay Shah, had declared that India would not journey to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup, raising worries about the tournament’s continuity.
The most recent talks between the two boards in the meeting have sparked optimism that the tournament will continue as intended, although there may be minor adjustments in both the schedule and locations.
There are 13 matches scheduled over a 13-day period for the upcoming event, where the leading two teams from each group will progress to the Super 4s. The final will be contested by the top two teams from the Super 4s. Pakistan is set to host the Asia Cup 2023 before the ICC Cricket World Cup, which is slated for October and November in India.
