The location of the Asia Cup this year is in question, and there are rumors that the competition might go on without Pakistan. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) argued that the competition should take place in a neutral location and refused to send its team to Pakistan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) suggested a hybrid model to address the problem, suggesting that Pakistan could host four of the tournament’s group-stage matches while the remaining matches would be played at a neutral site. The BCCI is not likely to approve this suggestion, though.

There have been discussions about moving the Asia Cup from Pakistan to Sri Lanka, according to The Telegraph India. According to the report, Pakistan will be informed at the next Asian Cricket Council (ACC) executive board meeting that all other participating nations have consented to play in Sri Lanka. India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan would be the teams competing in the tournament without Pakistan, with the possibility of a fifth team as well.

Pakistan has recently been deemed a safe country for sports by a delegation from the International Cricket Council (ICC), which visited there recently. The delegation was pleased with Pakistan’s capacity to host the Champions Trophy in 2025. While asking Pakistan for confirmation about their participation in the upcoming World Cup, they also stated their intention to mediate between the PCB and the BCCI.

There are still ongoing discussions and negotiations to find a solution that pleases all parties involved in the Asia Cup situation, so it is still uncertain.
