Asia Cup 2023: Pakistan devises new strategy; Sri Lanka, Bangladesh okay game plan

Exciting news is emerging about the Asia Cup 2023, with the latest updates now available. The upcoming Asia Cup, scheduled for September of this year, will be played in the ODI format. Pakistan is the host of the event. BCCI Secretary Jai Shah has caused a stir by stating that Team India will not be able to play cricket matches in Pakistan due to security concerns.

Pakistan is currently experiencing an atmosphere of commotion. In a recent development, it has been reported that Pakistan has agreed to host the upcoming Asia Cup. As per sources, Team India will be playing its matches at a neutral venue.

Several names were suggested for the event, but it has been discovered that the cricket boards of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were not prepared to host it. This has paved the way for Team India and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to take the lead. A recent development has emerged.

Pakistan’s hybrid model has received approval from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The latest development in the world of cricket is that the cricket boards of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have reportedly given their nod to participate in the Asia Cup tournament under the hybrid model suggested by Pakistan. There is a suggestion that the matches of Team India should be held at a different location and that Pakistan should be the sole host.

In recent news, Pakistani channel Geo News has reported that Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have given their approval for the hybrid model. This announcement comes after an official meeting held in Dubai by the Asian Cricket Council President, Jay Shah, within the past two days. The individual is considering the offer and is open to evaluating it further.

According to sources cited in the report, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has reportedly convened a meeting with ACC board members to discuss the PCB’s proposed hybrid model for hosting the Asia Cup. It is highly probable that the council will convene an official meeting by the end of this month to determine the future of the Asia Cup.

In a recent development, it has been confirmed that Team India will not be playing any matches in Pakistan. However, there are reports suggesting that their matches could potentially be held in Sri Lanka.

According to the report, Pakistan has recently implemented two options within the hybrid model. According to sources, the first option entails India playing its matches at a neutral venue, while all other matches will be held in Pakistan. A potential alternative is to conduct the initial leg of the tournament in Pakistan, featuring four group stage matches.

The subsequent leg, which includes the Indian team’s matches, as well as the final, would be held at neutral locations. According to sources, the cricket boards of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have reportedly reached an agreement on the second option. Pakistan is scheduled to play a group match against Nepal on their home turf amidst the current circumstances.

Group 2, consisting of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, is set to play their group-stage matches in Pakistan. Pakistan is set to host four matches, which will be determined by mutual agreement before the league transitions to neutral venues. The Sri Lankan cities of Dambulla and Pallekele have been suggested as potential neutral venues.
