The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) finally agreed to the hosting of the Asia Cup 2020 at a neutral venue in Abu Dhabi in UAE, on Saturday.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly expressed before that the Indian team would not visit their neighbors for the Asia Cup. Truth be told, the Indian board took steps to pull out of the competition.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) yielded to the idea of a competition without the investment of the cricketing goliath, and its money related practicality.
PCB lynchpin Ehsan Mani referred to ACC’s reliance for reserves produced through India’s cooperation as the purpose behind the competition being held at a nonpartisan setting – like the last time in 2018.
“There are such a significant number of new cricket-playing countries in Asia, and they required assets for that. The organizers get the assets by facilitating the Asia Cup,” said Mani while addressing news.co.pk.
“In the event that India remains out, it is impossible that the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) would create the necessary assets. In this manner, we have chosen not to compel coordinators to hold the Asia Cup in Pakistan,” he included.
India has not included in any bilateral series against Pakistan since 2012. They have only faced their neighboring chief adversaries during multilateral ICC occasions and Asia Cup.
In any case, Mani attested that Pakistan needn’t bother with any external support for hosting prominent international events.
Teams like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have visited Pakistan for an undeniable visit. Aside from these events, Pakistan is at present facilitating the Pakistan Super League (PSL) including a few global stars.
“We have been facilitating worldwide occasions and the PSL moreover. We have demonstrated that we can have these occasions with no outside assistance,” finished up the PCB boss.
