Uncertainty hangs over the possible participation of India in the Asia Cup 2020, scheduled to take place in Pakistan. Reports indicate that members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are currently deliberating on the matter and will take a final decision in June.
Pakistan was awarded the hosting rights for this year’s Asia Cup back in December 2018, but the lingering political tensions between India and Pakistan pose a challenge. The chances of India’s participation in the Asia Cup remains minimal.
The two nations met each other in the last edition of the Asia Cup in the UAE where India triumphed on both occasions. The last time Pakistan hosted the Asia Cup was way back in 2008, before the terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team bus truck in 2009.
