PCB waiting for BCCI’s confirmation

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) earned the hosting rights of the Asia Cup 2020 earlier this year in the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting.

Since then, questions have been raised over India’s participation in the event as the two nations don’t play cricket with each other due to political tensions across the border.

However, to address this issue, the managing director of the PCB Wasim Khan said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is waiting for BCCI’s confirmation and they are ready to host India.

"Board to board level, we share a good relation with India but they have a lot of government interference and we can't keep on running after them to play a bilateral series. If they want to play they will have to tell us and give us a firm commitment. We have no issues playing at a neutral venue," Khan said.

He also added that if India doesn’t want us to play in Pakistan, the ACC will have to decide a neutral venue. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has set the Indian Cricket Board date of June 2020 to verify its involvement in the Asia Cup planned for September next year.
