The 2023 Asia Cup schedule has not been announced. In fact, BCCI and PCB are head to head in organizing this tournament. Recently Pakistan Cricket Board suggested a hybrid model. Under this model, the tournament would have been hosted by Pakistan, but would have been played at a neutral venue against the Indian team. But now Pakistan’s attitude seems to have changed. Pakistan Cricket Board’s new insistence is that the India team will have to play in Pakistan. The PCB says that since the host country of the Asian Cup is Pakistan, all matches in the tournament must be played in Pakistan.
It is claimed in media reports that the Asian Cup matches will be played in Lahore in Pakistan and Kandy in Sri Lanka. However, it has yet to be officially announced. The India team led by Rohit Sharma will play their matches in Kandy. Apart from this, the India-Pakistan match will be played in Kandy. Actually, Sri Lanka will host 7 matches of this tournament while 4 matches will be played in Pakistan. The semifinals and the final of this tournament will be played in Sri Lanka.
In fact, while speaking to Indian Express recently, Pakistani Sports Minister Ahsan Mazari said that since Pakistan is hosting the 2023 Asia Cup, all matches in the tournament should be played on Pakistani soil. He also said that he doesn’t want a hybrid model. But if the Indian team does not come to Pakistan to play the Asian Cup, then the Pakistani team will not go to play in India.
