Asia Cup 2023: Pakistan Might Pull Out of Asia Cup, as 3 Countries Reject PCB Hybrid Model

The Asia Cup, which will take place in September of this year, may not be attended by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

According to reports, the three countries that are hosting the Asia Cup—Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan—are not in favor of the hybrid model put forth by the PCB. Pakistan now has two choices: play the event at a neutral site or withdraw from the competition.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Asian Cricket Council executive board members are anticipated to meet virtually or hold a formal meeting later this month to discuss the circumstance.

Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan have made it clear that they oppose the PCB’s proposed hybrid model for the Asia Cup.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which prefers the Asia Cup to be held at a neutral site, has declined to send their team to Pakistan for the tournament. The PCB, on the other hand, is apprehensive about holding the event somewhere other than Pakistan because it would interfere with their efforts to bring international cricket back to the nation.

The PCB’s hybrid model, which calls for playing four of the group-stage matches in Pakistan and the remaining games at a neutral site is also unlikely to be accepted by the BCCI.
