BCB Adopts A Definite Position On The 2023 Asia Cup

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.

Before Approving A Hybrid Concept For The World Cup, BCCI Requests Confirmation From PCB

Before Approving A Hybrid Concept For The World Cup, BCCI Requests Confirmation From PCB

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.
