PCB chief Wasim Khan

 

PCB chief executive Wasim Khan has dismissed reports that Pakistan has given up its hosting rights of the T20 Asia Cup. In fact he has bartered that if the Men in Blue would not turn up for the Asia Cup, then Pakistan would also boycott the 2021 T20 World Cup slated to be played in India.

After the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) agreed to send its team to Pakistan for a T20I series and two ICC World Test Championship matches in three phases, reports emerged that the Pakistan Cricket Board has given the hosting rights to the September event to Bangladesh.
 
"It is not the prerogative of the PCB or the ICC to change the host as it was the decision of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC)," Wasim was quoted as saying by The Dawn.
 
"We are currently considering two venues to host the Asia Cup," he added. "If India doesn't come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, we would also refuse participation in the 2021 T20 World Cup there."
 
Last week, it emerged out that BCCI hasn't budged on its decision of not playing cricket on Pakistani soil, thus resulting in Pakistan losing hosting rights for the Asia Cup.
 
India and Pakistan's cricketing relations have been very poor ever since the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Although Pakistan did tour India in 2012 for a short series of 3 ODIs and 2 T20s, but otherwise, India and Pakistan have not played a full length bilateral series since 13 years. They both have played against each other only in ICC events or the Asia Cup.
 
The Indian cricket team has not stepped foot on Pakistani soil since 2008 and it is highly unlikely that the government will allow the Men in Blue to visit Pakistan for the Asia Cup to be held this year.
