Pakistan desperate to host Asia Cup, future hinges on BCCI's decision
The Pakistan Cricket Board has set a deadline for confirmation of the Indian Cricket Board till June 2020 for representation in the Asia Cup to be held in September next year. "We have to see if India agrees to come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup or not," PCB CEO Wasim Khan said in an interview. There is still plenty of time for September next year but by June we should know where the tournament will be and whether India can host it due to India not participating. ”
The final decision to move the tournament, however, is the prerogative of the Asian Cricket Council. "But it is for the Asian Cricket Council and the ICC to take this decision," Khan said. We are ready to host India in the Asia Cup. "
Khan, however, acknowledged the problems with hosting India in the bilateral cricket series during the current tense relationship between the two neighboring countries. "We have good relations with India at the board level, but they have a lot of government intervention and we cannot run after them for a bilateral series," he said. If they want to play, they have to tell us and make a commitment. We have no problem playing at a neutral venue. "
