Asia Cup without Pakistan?

Pakistan set to Travel to India For World Cup 2023? Babar drops a few hints: Two significant tournaments, the Cricket World Cup and the Asia Cup are scheduled to take place in 2023 for men’s cricket. India and Pakistan, two cricketing powerhouses, may or may not compete in both of these competitions. The World Cup will be held in India, while the Asia Cup will be held in Pakistan.

As per some rumors around, Pakistan will host the Asia Cup 2023 but India won’t travel to Pakistan. So all the fixtures of India will be played at UAE. The two sides have avoided each other in bilateral series as a consequence of the strained political ties between India and Pakistan. The last bilateral series was played in 2012–13, and the last Test game between the two countries was played in 2007

The current controversy developed after BCCI Secretary Jay Shah stated that India would not travel to Pak for the Asia Cup and insisted that the competition be held in a neutral venue. The notion was not well received by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who threatened to withdraw from the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
