Asia Cup Will Not Be Held in Pakistan: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly

In a shocking revelation, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President, Sourav Ganguly has said that this year’s Asia Cup will be held in Dubai instead of Pakistan.

The news comes as a surprise for many considering Pakistan has the hosting rights for the events. Earlier, rumors were brewing regarding a possible deal that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and BCCI regarding the event.

Ganguly has also said that both Pakistan and India will participate in the event, putting all the rumors of India not playing in the Asia Cup to rest.

He made the revelation earlier today at Kolkata Airport while departing for the Asian Cricket Council meeting which will be held on 3rd March.

Asia Cup will be held in Dubai and both India and Pakistan will play.

There were reports that India will not tour Pakistan to participate in the competition, which is the reason why the tournament will have to be rescheduled and UAE looks like a mutually agreeable option for the two parties.

Previously, Pakistan has also declined to visit India for the Asia Cup, due to which the tournament was held in the UAE.

  • IT SHOULD BE IN PAKISTAN, DAM CARE TO INDIA. IF HE DONT WANT TO COME PAKISTAN LET HIM TO GET OUT HIS SELF FROM ASIA CUP.

  • 2 takke ka bcci ke ki auqat ke dictate karey kaun kab kahin kia khele ga. BCCI should be ban from cricket fraternity.

  • India has always politicized the sports. The standard of hockey & other sports has declined in both the countries for the same same reason. India blackmails the ICC over it’s monetary value which is also a reason that it can’t be banned. Boycotting at mutual levels is the only solution now & it may also be implemented on World Cup ties too.
