The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been granted rights for facilitating the 2020 Asia Cup, however an approach whether the occasion will be held in Pakistan or UAE still stays to be taken.
“The 2020 Asia Cup will occur in Pakistan. They will reveal to us where we’ll hold it, since they are the hosts. India facilitated it last time, however it was held in the UAE,” Nazmul Hassan, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) President said on Thursday (December 13).
Eventually, it Pakistan’s relations with India and how things take care of business between the two countries in the following year or so will choose where the competition will be held. As things stand, it appears to be conceivable the six-country occasion will be held in UAE, which has been Pakistan’s ‘home ground’ since 2010.
That would mean UAE facilitating consecutive Asia Cups, having held the occasion this year in September. The competition facilitated by the BCCI was compelled to be arranged in the UAE after Pakistan’s refusal to head out to India inferable from the continuous political strains between the two countries. India triumphed over Bangladesh in the last by three wickets to lift the trophy.
The 2020 release of the Asia Cup will be held in the period of September, only multi month before the ICC Twenty20 World Cup and played in the T20 organize. This may be the second time that the six-country occasion is being held in the 20-over organization after the 2014 version in Bangladesh.
