India won’t visit Pakistan for the Asia Cup

Since India won’t visit Pakistan for the Asia Cup , it’s unclear where the competition will actually take place. The news comes on the day of the BCCI’s annual general meeting in Mumbai, where Jay Shah, BCCI secretary and head of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), urged that the Asia Cup should be played at a different location in the following year.

Shah addressed the reporters during the BCCI AGM, “The Asia Cup 2023 will take place at a neutral venue. “As president of the ACC, I say this. Both they and we (India) are prohibited from travelling to Pakistan.

The Asia Cup has historically taken place at a neutral site.” Rajiv Shukla, who was re-elected as board vice-president, the treasurer Ashish Shelar, and president Roger Binny, the new BCCI office bearers, were there when Shah talked to the media.

Shah’s remarks might also have some bearing on two ICC events that will take place in Pakistan and India in the coming years. Pakistan is slated to host the 2025 Champions Trophy, with India hosting the 2023 ODI World Cup shortly after the Asia Cup.

It remains to be seen what effect India’s inability to play in Pakistan, and Pakistan’s inability to play in India, will have on those competitions. Pakistan needed permission from their government to visit India for the 2016 T20 World Cup, and they only received it just in time. It’s unlikely that the ICC will make a statement at this time.

The BCCI AGM brought up the issue of travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, and members were informed that a choice will be made based on the Indian government’s approval. Shukla reaffirmed the remark in a later casual conversation with the media. Shah announced that India would not be visiting Pakistan at this time.

Unlike in the past, the BCCI did not have a formal media briefing. The office holders would meet with the media informally on Tuesday, according to information provided to the press. The media were requested to turn in their phones before the chat and were instead given notepads.
