The Indian cricket team won’t be travelling to Pakistan for the 2023 Asia Cup. Asian Cricket Council chief Jay Shah said on the sidelines of the 91st BCCI Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The 2023 Asia Cup is slated to be hosted by Pakistan. The sources had earlier said that the BCCI was open to sending Team India to participate in the tournament.
“We’ll have Asia Cup 2023 at a neutral venue. It’s the Government which decides over the permission of our team visiting Pakistan so we won’t comment on that but for the 2023 Asia Cup, it is decided that the tournament will be held at a neutral venue,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed.
India had last toured Pakistan for a bilateral series in 2005-06 under the leadership of Rahul Dravid. India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral cricket series since 2012-13. Both teams have not played in bilateral series since, the teams have just met in world events or Asia Cup.
