In light of Indian worries, the 2023 Asia Cup status debate continues.
In a meeting with ACC (Asian Cricket Council ) members, Jay Shah made the “stance clear” of BCCI.
According to BCCI, they will not endorse Najam Sethi’s hybrid idea.
In NEW DELHI: According to a Press Trust of India (PTI) report, the Indian Cricket Board will not back Pakistan’s hybrid plan for the Asia Cup 2023 as long as disagreement over the big event’s legitimacy exists.
Najam Sethi, the chairman of the management committee for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has submitted a proposal to the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to allay Indian worries over not traveling to Islamabad for the major event.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is still hesitant to be transparent about the situation, despite certain council members’ agreement with the hybrid approach.
The BCCI, according to the PTI report, would not be in favor of Najam Sethi’s suggestion, which calls for holding the final and India’s matches at a neutral site while the two super four games and four preliminary rounds be played in Pakistan.
In a casual conversation with some of the members of the continental organization in Ahmedabad, the Indian news agency reported that ACC Chairman Jay Shah, who is also the BCCI secretary, made the Indian board’s position clear.
A meeting of the ACC’s executive body, which will ultimately decide on this matter, is scheduled for very shortly.
Since their political ties have deteriorated, India and Pakistan are only able to face each other in multi-team competitions because bilateral cricket is still on hold between the two countries.
Pakistan has vowed to boycott the World Cup if they are made to hold the full Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates, which will take place in India in October-November.
