Asia Cup to be relocated from Pakistan to Sri Lanka due to India’s non-participation

Share This Post:

In response to India’s ongoing refusal to send its team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has made the decision to shift the tournament to another Asian country, with Sri Lanka being the most viable option. The host venue is expected to be announced by the end of May.

The decision comes after Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan voiced their support for relocating the Asia Cup from Pakistan. While the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has yet to confirm their team’s participation in the event following the relocation, it should be noted that the PCB had previously threatened to boycott the upcoming World Cup in India after the Indian team refused to travel to Pakistan.

Despite PCB chairman’s suggestion of hosting matches in Pakistan and India in the United Arab Emirates, none of the member countries responded positively, according to an Asian Cricket Council source who spoke to the Press Trust of India. With the ACC’s decision to relocate the tournament, cricket fans can look forward to an exciting event in Sri Lanka in September.
