We Want Sri Lanka to Host Our World Cup Matches: PCB

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) intends to hold World Cup matches in Bangladesh or Sri Lanka (ANI).

“Yes, we are thinking that we will not travel to India for World Cup matches if the BCCI doesn’t send their team to Pakistan for the Asia Cup. We want Sri Lanka or Bangladesh to host our matches; we want to play there and not in India”, a PCB source told ANI.

Nevertheless, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday denied claims that Pakistan would host World Cup matches in Bangladesh in 2023.

“Bangladesh was not discussed at all at the board meeting, and full backing for the event [the World Cup] in India was given by the board. We’re focused on that,” an ICC official told reporters on Wednesday.

The world cup is expected to take place in the months of October or November this year. The International Cricket Council will announce the detailed schedule soon.
