New Delhi: The hosting of Asia Cup 2023 (Asia Cup 2023) has been taken from Pakistan (Pakistan). Meanwhile, Pakistan has been humiliated at the international level. Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have rejected the hybrid model proposed by Pakistan.
Let it be known that in the hybrid model introduced by PCB President Najam Sethi, it was introduced that Pakistan should play three or four matches of the Asia Cup at home while the match against India was to be played elsewhere.
Earlier, Sethi had said that if the tournament is organized in another country instead of Pakistan, he will not participate in this match. Information was received that at such a time, Pakistan can also boycott the Asia Cup. According to ACC sources, Pakistan now has only two options either to play such matches in the host country or to pull out of the tournament.
ICC said that even if Pakistan withdraws from the tournament, it will still be called Asia Cup. The PCB has said that if Sri Lanka does not accept the hybrid model made for the Asia Cup, the PCB will not send its team to Sri Lanka. Sources have also indicated the possibility that the Asia Cup may be canceled completely this year.
Whatever decision Pakistan takes regarding the Asia Cup, there are also speculations that Pakistan may not rule out sending its team for the 2023 ODI World Cup. Because Asia Cup is an ACC tournament, while World Cup is an ICC tournament. Pulling out of the ICC tournament is not as easy as the PCB is thinking. That is why he has to send his team for the World Cup to be held in India.
