Indian cricket board secretary Jay Shah has flown to Bahrain the place an emergent assembly of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has been known as at PCB chairman Najam Sethi’s behest to determine the destiny of Pakistan’s Asia Cup internet hosting rights.
If sources within the BCCI are to be believed, there’s little to no likelihood of the Asia Cup being held in Pakistan in September.
If in any respect, the match will both be shifted to UAE with PCB retaining the internet hosting rights, or Sri Lanka might be the opposite possibility.
“Jay is in Bahrain for the ACC meeting. The BCCI’s stand will not change. We will not be travelling to Pakistan as we haven’t got any go-ahead from the government,” a BCCI supply said.
It can also be understood that current bomb blasts in Peshawar have once more raised safety issues about holding cricket tournaments in Pakistan.
In December final yr, ACC chairman Shah launched the itinerary of the continental physique and the venue of the Asia Cup wasn’t talked about.
This led to Sethi accusing Shah of taking a “unilateral decision”, an allegation that ACC formally refuted stating that repeated emails to PCB in search of suggestions on the itinerary went unanswered.
In October final yr, Shah, who can also be the supremo of ACC, formally advised the media that India is not going to journey to Pakistan.
The erstwhile PCB chief Ramiz Raja had again then threatened that Pakistan is not going to journey to India for this yr’s 50-over World Cup.
