Before Approving A Hybrid Concept For The World Cup, BCCI Requests Confirmation From PCB
May 21, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
The planned dates for the Asia Cup are September 2 through September 16.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has often argued that the whole Asia Cup should take place in a neutral location and has rejected the concept of sending their team to Pakistan for this year’s competition.
PCB, on the other hand, is determined about holding the tournament in their area, if not the entirety of it. Najam Sethi, the chairman of the PCB management committee, proposed a hybrid plan to achieve this, according to which Pakistan would host the first four games in the tournament’s group stage. Additionally, the finals and matches involving India will be played in a neutral site during the next round.
In the event that the BCCI does not ultimately approve the hybrid format, the PCB president has openly threatened to withdraw from the Asia Cup in 2023.
The standoff appears to be ending, according to sources in the PCB. BCCI and ACC members have advised board authorities that they are open to accepting the new hybrid model put out by PCB.
In exchange, PCB must guarantee BCCI that they would send a side to India for the 2023 World Cup. Although PCB has not yet responded in this respect, a favorable reaction is not ruled out.
The PCB officials were expecting for an email from the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), despite Saturday being a holiday, but it never came.
The ODI World Cup is scheduled to be contested this year, and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has convened a Special General Meeting (SGM) for May 27 in Ahmedabad to supervise it. In this meeting, the aforementioned hybrid model may be authorized. On that day, the World Cup schedule is also anticipated to be revealed.
Before the aforementioned meeting, BCCI would like assurance from PCB on their participation in the World Cup. The head of the PCB has also voiced opposition to hosting the India-Pakistan game in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Once the impasse is broken, the high-profile matchup between the bitter adversaries will be held somewhere else.
UAE is also interested to host the Asia Cup’s second round. The Emirates Cricket Board has recommended that games begin around 4:30 PM in order to escape the heat.
It should be mentioned that the proposed dates for the Asia Cup are September 2 through September 16.
