Even though the proposed Asia Cup cricket in Pakistan clouded with suspicion, Pakistan is pushing for it. The Pakistan Cricket Board has once again made it clear that they will not compromise with the Asia Cup 2020 for the Indian Premier League (IPL). Please tell us that the Asia Cup cricket is to held in Pakistan in September. Pakistan has hosted this year’s Asia Cup played in the T20 format, but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is not keen on playing in Pakistan. The BCCI wants the Asia Cup to held at a neutral venue instead of Pakistan.
Asia Cup 2020
Let me tell you that the dates have not been decided yet for the Asia Cup, but there is doubt about the location. Meanwhile, there are discussions that IPL 2020 may start from 26 September. However, there has been no official BCCI statement regarding the IPL.
Significantly, the national and international cricket program has gone awry due to the Coronavirus epidemic. Even World Cup events are under doubt. So efforts are on to organize big tournaments like Asia Cup and IPL. Following the news of the IPL’s event in September, the Pakistan Cricket Board said that no domestic cricket league (IPL) could attract more than the Asia Cup, so the Asia Cup would be held according to the scheduled schedule.
Pakistan Cricket Board said how Pakistan could let the Asia Cup T20 window for the domestic league. The Asia Cup T20 will be held as scheduled, as decided between members in the previous teleconference. It is also essential for the economic development of PCBs. And the development of member boards of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
PCB CEO Wasim Khan has also said in the past that he cannot sacrifice the Asia Cup for the IPL. According to the Sri Lankan Cricket Board’s claim, he is ready to host the Asia Cup here. But a final decision in this regard will take at the next meeting of the ACC.
