25 May, 2023
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reached an agreement with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to adopt a Hybrid Model for the upcoming Asia Cup. Under this arrangement, select matches will be hosted in Pakistan, while others will take place at neutral venues. Although the exact neutral venue is yet to be finalized, an announcement regarding this crucial detail is expected soon.
BCCI’s Approval and Condition:
Jay Shah, Secretary of the BCCI, has granted his approval to the PCB’s proposal. However, there is a condition attached to the agreement. Pakistan is required to confirm their participation in the upcoming ICC World Cup, which is set to be hosted by India, in writing.
For India’s matches in the Asia Cup, the neutral venue could potentially be either the United Arab Emirates (UAE) or Sri Lanka. Discussions are underway to determine the most suitable location for these fixtures. Notably, India is slated to host the ICC World Cup next year, while Pakistan will be hosting the Asia Cup before that.
Resolving Initial Disagreements:
Initially, there were disagreements between the two cricket boards, with India refusing to play in Pakistan and Pakistan declining to travel to India. However, both parties are currently engaged in negotiations to find common ground through the proposed Hybrid Model for the Asia Cup.
The Pakistan Cricket Board’s agreement to the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s Hybrid Model proposal marks a significant step forward for the Asia Cup 2023. With matches set to be played in Pakistan and at neutral venues, fans can anticipate an exciting tournament ahead. The final decision regarding the neutral venue, expected to be announced soon, will further enhance the anticipation for this prestigious cricket event.
