ODI Asia Cup 2023: The ODI Asia Cup will be held in 2023 and that six-team tournament will be held in the month of August to September this year.
But still, the venue hasn’t been decided as the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has pushed this matter to the next month.
The last Asia Cup event was played in the shortest format mode because of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
This year, the Asia Cup 2023 will be played in the One-Day International format because of the ICC ODI World Cup will be played in 2023 and India will host the ICC mega event.
The arch-rivalling teams, India and Pakistan are placed in the same group yet again.
But according to the reports, the men in the blue side will not go to Pakistan for the upcoming event of the Asia Cup 2023 which will be a fifty-overs affair.
The BCCI has revealed that this tournament will be shifted to some other neutral venue.
Pakistan has the original hosting rights of the ODI Asia Cup 2023. The members of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) will be in constant dialogue for finding the venue to hold this year’s Asia Cup tournament.
In that meeting, the ACC members said that the diplomats of both countries will not be allowed to interfere in the matters of the Asian Cricket Council.
The decision of pulling out the Asia Cup 2023 from Pakistan didn’t go well with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
After the BCCI said that the Indian team would not travel to Pakistan, the PCB also gave a response as they will boycott the ICC World Cup in the fifty overs format which will be held in India later this year.
The Pakistan Cricket Board may still have the hosting rights. The venue can be shifted just like last year.
The Asia Cup T20 in 2022 should have been held in India. But it was shifted to the United Arab Emirates.
The Indian board had strongly demanded a change in the venue so that the men in the blue side and the other teams also can play this event without any fear or concerns over the security.
