#AsiaCup2023 might be cancelled, Geo Super reported yesterday while citing an unknown source. There is a good probability that both India and Pakistan will now look to organize a three or four nation series at home to fill the void.
#AsiaCup2023 Might Be Cancelled
Geo Super quoted an unknown source as saying, “It is just a formality now that the Asian Cricket Council executive board members meet virtually or a proper meeting is called later this month. But, the PCB is now aware that Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are not backing their hybrid model proposal for the Asia Cup. Pakistan has two options only. Play the tournament at neutral venue or withdraw. In case Pakistan doesn’t play, it will still be called Asia Cup but broadcaster will renegotiate the deal in absence of Pakistan.”
“There is also every possibility the Asia Cup might not be held this year because without Pakistan and India matches the broadcasters are not likely to offer the same amount they were offering to the ACC with Pakistan included.”
It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan too are likely to invite teams like the West Indies, South Africa and Zimbabwe to stage a four-nation series at home. Even other teams might consider playing in Pakistan because of the playing conditions that should be similar to what would be on offer in India during the #ICCODIWC.
