BCB Adopts A Definite Position On The 2023 Asia Cup
May 30, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC)’s decision about the 2019 Asia Cup will be supported by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).
It should be mentioned that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has refused to send its team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup and is adamant that the competition take place in a neutral location.
However, the PCB has no interest in organizing the tournament outside of Pakistan since doing so would undermine its attempts to bring back international cricket to the nation.
Pakistan Will Host The Occasion
The hybrid plan, put up by the PCB, which saw four of the group stage matches played in Pakistan and the rest of the competition taking place at a neutral site, is also not expected to be approved by the BCCI.
Due to the intense heat, the BCB has previously raised concerns about the UAE being one of the neutral locations.
“We would like to participate in the Asia Cup. We are interested in the competition regardless of the model it is held in. We would have to play there if the ACC says the event will be held in Dubai and the other members concur, BCB Cricket Operations Chairman Jalal Yunus told the local media on Monday.
Since we are concentrating on the World Cup, there is discomfort. We declined to play in Dubai because we were considering our preparations. We are awaiting the ACC’s judgement,” he continued.
Najam Sethi, the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, had urged a logical strategy to resolve the situation, which affects both the country’s participation in this year’s ODI World Cup and the successful hosting of the Asia Cup.
Sethi stated that the likelihood of the Pakistani squad visiting India for the ODI World Cup is slim while speaking to the media on the occasion of the meeting of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).
“In the event that India declines to visit Pakistan to compete in the Asia Cup, there is a potential that the Pakistani authorities won’t permit the Men in Green to cross the border to participate in the World Cup. The ultimate loser in such scenario will be cricket, according to Sethi.
“There should be a compromise to resolve issues that unquestionably jeopardies the successful holding of ICC and ACC events. The government would not let us to travel to India to participate in World Cup matches if India refuses to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, he said.
