Cricket: 2023 Asia Cup To Be Played On Neutral Venue; Team India Will Not Go To Pakistan

New Delhi: Team India will not go to Pakistan to play Asia Cup. This has been confirmed by the President of Asia Cricket Council (ACC), Jay Shah. He said that the 2023 Asia Cup will be played at a neutral venue. This clearly means that Pakistan will no longer be the host of the Asia Cup.

India last played a match in Pakistan in 2008. After this, the Indian team has not gone to Pakistan after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 2008. Since then both the teams have been playing at neutral venues, that too in ICC and ACC events. 

The last bilateral series between the two was played in 2012-13. On 23 October, a day before Diwali, India-Pakistan teams will face each other in the T20 World Cup.

What did Jay Shah say?: The President of the Asia Cricket Council said on Tuesday, 'Asia Cup 2023 will be played at a neutral venue. We will not comment on whether the government decides on allowing our team to go to Pakistan. For the 2023 Asia Cup, it has been decided that the tournament will be held at a neutral venue.'
