New Delhi. Pakistan does not want to give up hosting the Asia Cup 2023 under any circumstances. After the hybrid model was rejected, the PCB has placed a demand before the Asian Cricket Council to have the first four matches of the tournament in Pakistan. According to media reports, if the ACC does not agree to this, then Pakistan will withdraw from the ACC as well as withdrawing from the Asia Cup.
