DUBAI: The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has decided to allot the 2023 edition of the Asia Cup to Pakistan.
The tournament, set to be played in the ODI format, will follow a T20 Asia Cup in Sri Lanka next year.
The decisions were taken by an ACC meeting which was held in Dubai on Friday.
The ACC meeting, chaired by Jay Shah, the secretary of BCCI, has recognised that it is the turn of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to host the event.
He said the PCB, as it has been maintaining in the recent times, has declared that it will not host the event at a neutral venue, but in Pakistan only.
The decision came hours after Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly invited Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman (PCB) Ramiz Raja to watch the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 final.
The PCB Chairman and the BCCI President met on the sidelines of the Asian Cricket Council’s Executive Board meeting on Friday.
