ACC Announces Decision on Asia Cup 2023 Venue

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has accepted the hybrid model proposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding the venue of the upcoming Asia Cup 2023.

Recent media reports state that Pakistan will host the first four matches of the event, while the remaining tournament will be held in Colombo and Pallekele.

The much-anticipated 50-over Asia Cup is scheduled to take place in September, and all the participating nations have given a green signal to the proposal.

The PCB had proposed a hybrid model, offering India to play its matches at a neutral venue while India had insisted on shifting the entire tournament to a neutral venue. Now, all the boards have accepted PCB’s hybrid model for the Asia Cup 2023, nominating Sri Lanka as the co-host.

As per this plan, all participants except India would play one match in Pakistan. In the second phase, all teams, including India, would play their remaining matches in Sri Lanka.

It is worth noting that Pakistan had warned the BCCI about refusing to participate in the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023, which is scheduled to be held in India if the event was shifted outside Pakistan.

  • It’s very heartening to learn that the hybrid model proposed by Najam Sethi for the upcoming Asia Cup has been approved by all the Boards. Sethi deserves kudo

  • Well done Najam Sethi. Pakistan world cup match may also b shifted to neutral Venu.

  • Now that India has refused to come to Pakistan, hope that PCB would also stick to its stance of Pakistan team playing world cup matches at a neutral venue. We hope that whether it is Najam Sethi or Zaka Ashraf, but Chairman PCB would not undermine national honour just for the sake of some revenue.

  • Well done NAJAM SETHI for not kneeling down to what said to be indias icc body.

  • Indian BCCI Is Dog’s Tail Which Never Become Straight,Their ill Mantelilty & Their Behaviour Shows How Frostrated They Are,They Want To Teach Them A Very Tight Lession.
    Pakistan Should Bycot ICC World Cup Or Will Play Only At One Condition That Pakistan Will Not Play A Single Match In India(If They Bother Play In Pakistan Why Should I Play In India)All Pakistani Matches Will Transfers At Hybrid Model.

  • Pakistan are pigs and nothing will happen if they boycott WC 2023, it’s better to give a change to a deserving team in if they boycott WC let them , ICC should band pak , terrorist bastads

  • Very wrong proposal by the PCB. They should have offered final to be played in Pakistan.

  • Is the world cup matches of Pakistan team also shifted on neutral venue or not?
    If not then this decision is very strongly week.If the PCB happy for acception of their hybrid model!why PCT participate in world cup matches in India?why not hybrid model for World cup????
