Asia Cup 2020 Doubtful After ACC Meeting Gets Postponed

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Asian Cricket Council meeting that will decide the venues of the Asia Cup 2020 has postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. As with many other sporting events, the fate of another top tournament is uncertain as far as conditions are concerned.

The Asia Cup between India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Pakistan will start from September 2020. But due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it seems impossible to conduct a meeting for it. Recently, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown in the country.

This decision is also a massive blow for cricket fans who are looking forward to the start of the IPL 2020. Other sporting events have also postponed. The biggest of all is the postponing of the Olympics for a year.
In the meantime, the ACC has decided to hold a meeting to determine possible venues for the Asia Cup 2020, hosted by the Pakistan Cricket Board. It came to prominence after Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president that Team India denied going to Pakistan to play cricket. However, he had no problems playing at the neutral venue the decision made in anticipation of the current political tension between the two countries.
On the other hand, the PCB has agreed to host some matches of the Asia Cup 2020 in their country, with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. According to the PCB, this will be a significant benefit for them when cricket is slowly getting back on track.
“The PCB’s stance is that international cricket is slowly returning to Pakistan to benefit from hosting some of the Asian Cup’s home games,” according to a source.
Earlier this month, the meeting had to cancel due to coronavirus. Officials thought they would perform it next to the ICC meeting, but that never happened. Now, that conference is going through a video conference.
