Pakistan was given the right to host the Asia Cup in 2020, but it can be organized in the United Arab Emirates because if it holds it in its own country, there will be suspicion on India’s stake. Asian Cricket Council (ACC) handed over the tournament to Pakistan in its meeting in Singapore. This tournament will be held in Australia before the World T20 in Australia. Due to political tension with Pakistan, India hosted the last Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
A senior BCCI official said, “The decision to play in Pakistan will be taken entirely by the government. The board will completely emulate the choice of the center. We believe that, as we hosted it in UAE last year, Pakistan should also organize it at a neutral venue. ” In the ACC meeting, the PCB representatives insisted that Sri Lanka send their team to Pakistan to play two matches of the ICC Test Championship in Lahore and Karachi in September this year. It was also decided that the next Asian Games will be in the T20 format, and ACC will provide technical support to the Asian Olympics Council.
