Bangladesh & Sri Lanka Support Asia Cup Move

338Views 4Likes

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have extended their support to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to move the Asia Cup out of Pakistan after India’s refusal to participate in the championship. Reports suggest that both cricket boards have shown interest in hosting the tournament, which would meet the BCCI’s demand for a neutral venue.

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is keen to consider replacing Pakistan with United Arab Emirates (UAE) if the tournament is moved out of Pakistan, and the Men in Green refuse to participate. The president of ACC, Jay Shah, has assured broadcasters that any financial losses incurred due to Pakistan’s absence will be compensated in a future series involving India.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier proposed a hybrid model to host the Asia Cup 2023, where India could play their matches at a neutral venue. However, the BCCI is likely to strike down any such proposal. The controversy surrounding the Asia Cup is unlikely to end anytime soon, with PCB chairman Najam Sethi making it clear that Pakistan will not travel to India if the BCCI is not willing to send their team for the Asia Cup, which was earlier scheduled to be held in Pakistan.

Sethi had reportedly told reporters, “There should be a middle way to solve problems that surely threaten the smooth hosting of ICC and ACC events. In case of India’s refusal to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, the government will not allow us to travel to India to figure in the World Cup matches.”

Cricket fans around the world are eagerly waiting to see the outcome of this dispute between the cricket boards of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. The Asia Cup is a prestigious event that brings together the best teams from Asia to compete for the ultimate prize. The tournament has a rich history, and the winner of the Asia Cup earns the bragging rights of being the best team in Asia.

The decision to move the Asia Cup out of Pakistan will not only impact the cricketing world but also the country’s economy. Hosting a major event like the Asia Cup would have brought in much-needed revenue and would have put Pakistan on the map as a cricketing nation.

The situation is delicate, and both sides need to come to a mutual agreement for the tournament to go ahead smoothly. The Asia Cup is not just a game; it’s a symbol of unity and peace. Cricket has the power to bring people together, and we hope that the cricket boards involved will find a way to resolve their differences and ensure that the Asia Cup is held in a manner that benefits all stakeholders.

In conclusion, the decision to move the Asia Cup out of Pakistan has raised several concerns in the cricketing world. The BCCI, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh cricket boards have extended their support to find a neutral venue for the tournament. The ACC is keen to consider UAE as a replacement for Pakistan if the Men in Green refuse to participate.

The situation is delicate, and both sides need to come to a mutual agreement for the tournament to go ahead smoothly. Cricket is a symbol of unity and peace, and we hope that the cricket boards involved will find a way to resolve their differences and ensure that the Asia Cup is held in a manner that benefits all stakeholders.
