The schedule was supposed to be announced this week, but now the PCB boss will meet BCCI counterparts to clear the fate of the games
The controversy surrounding Asia Cup 2023 shows no signs of resolution. The schedule for the tournament remains uncertain as the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Zaka Ashraf, plans to meet with Jay Shah, the Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), to discuss the conditions.
The new leadership of the PCB, including the head and the sports minister, express dissatisfaction with the hybrid model and oppose sharing the event with Sri Lanka. At present, the PCB intends to hold the World Cup 2023 visit as leverage to secure complete hosting rights for the Asia Cup.
Although the schedule was expected to be announced this week, the PCB chief will now engage in discussions with his BCCI counterparts to determine the fate of the matches.
Initially, the BCCI sought to move the entire tournament out of Pakistan. However, after negotiations, it was agreed that four games would be played in Pakistan while the remaining matches would be relocated to Sri Lanka.
