Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sought a response from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) before finalizing the venue for the upcoming Asia Cup in September 2020. While Pakistan would not mind hosting the tournament within its borders, however, a denial of traveling to Pakistan that would come from India is producing all the ruckus.
Speaking on the same, PCB’s CEO Wasim Khan told PTI that they await India’s response on if they are willing to tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup.
“There is still some time till next year’s September but by June, we have to know where we are going with this and if it can’t be hosted here because of a lack of involvement of India,” he told PTI.
Wasim further added that the Indian Government interference has been a major factor in the plummeted cricketing relations between the two countries.
“If they want to play they will have to tell us and give us a firm commitment. We have no issues playing at a neutral venue,” concluded Wasim.
Asia Cup 2020 will be the 15th edition of the tournament and would be a T20 format tournament. The last Asia Cup was played in Dubai, in 2018, wherein, India emerged as winners, however, the format was ODI.
