In what location will the Men’s Asia Cup be held? Even so, will it be played? The heads of the Indian (BCCI), Bangladeshi (BCB), Sri Lankan (SLC), and Afghani (ACB) cricket boards will gather informally to discuss these issues on May 28 in Ahmedabad while the IPL final is being played.

Pakistan is hosting The Asia Cup this year; however, since India has decided against attending, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has been considering alternatives. Recently, the PCB proposed a hybrid host format for the six-team competition, with four of the tournament’s 13 games taking place in Pakistan. The remainder, including the conclusion, would take place abroad. However, in negotiations with the PCB, the ACC has yet to make a final decision.

It is understood that Pakistan does not anticipate any significant opposition to the hybrid approach. Where India and their opponents would be based in the last remaining detail. Sri Lanka or the United Arab Emirates are the options.
