PCB-BCCI stand firm
Pakistan is to host the Asia Cup, but the BCCI has made it clear that the Indian team will not go there. He had demanded to have the Asia Cup at a neutral venue, but the PCB does not want to take the tournament out of its home. Pakistan had said that if India wanted, it could play its Asia Cup matches at a neutral venue.
Last month, the PCB had made this proposal in the meeting of the Asia Cricket Council. But the BCCI does not seem to be agreeing to this. The PCB has flatly refused to hold the entire tournament in any other country and is firm on its stand. It has been told in the report that Sri Lanka and Bangladesh had also appealed to Pakistan to conduct the Asia Cup at some other venue but Pakistan did not accept it.
