Reports in media suggest that PCB & BCCI have finally reached an agreement on both #AsiaCup23 and #ICCWC23. It is worth mentioning here that during the last few months because of the differences between Board of Control for Cricket in India and Pakistan Cricket Board, it was unclear whether or not Asia Cup was going to be held this year and if Pakistan was going to participate in the ICC world cup that is supposed to take place later in the year in India.
BCCI Ready To Accept The Hybrid Model For #AsiaCup23, PCB Agrees To Play #ICCWC23 Match In Ahmedabad
PTI quoted an Asian Cricket Council (ACC) source as saying, “Oman Cricket board chief Pankaj Khimji, one of the respected ACC executive board members, was entrusted to find a solution as most countries didn’t want a hybrid model. But as of now four non-India games i.e. Pakistan versus Nepal, Bangladesh versus Afghanistan, Afghanistan versus Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka versus Bangladesh will be held at the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore. The two India versus Pakistan games and all other super four games will be held in either Pallekele or Galle.”
Following BCCI’s acceptance of the hybrid model, Cricket Pakistan reported that PCB agreed to playing in Ahmedabad. Earlier, Pakistan had expressed concerns owing to reasons relating to the team’s security.
