Pakistan trying to create hurdles in ODI World Cup
Asia Cup may be held in Sri Lanka instead of Pakistan
New Delhi. This year’s Asia Cup was hosted by Pakistan. But, now it is decided to shift this tournament to Sri Lanka. Because BCCI has refused to send Team India to Pakistan. Since then, there is a possibility that the Asia Cup can now be organized in Sri Lanka. The final decision regarding the venue can be taken in the meeting of the Asian Cricket Council to be held next month. In such a situation, it is no less than a setback for Pakistan. In such a state of affairs, Pakistan is now trying to avoid the hurdles in the World Cup to be held in India.
If Pakistan takes part in the ODI World Cup to be held in India this year, then it will not play the match at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad. A report has come out quoting Geo News sources, in which it is being said that Pakistan may not agree to play against India at the Narendra Modi Stadium. According to the report, Pakistan can play most of its matches in Bangalore and Chennai due to security reasons. Kolkata’s Eden Gardens can also be a venue. The schedule of the World Cup has not yet been announced by the ICC. But, its schedule can be released after IPL 2023.

Earlier, PCB Chairman Najam Sethi had said that if India does not come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, then the chances of Pakistan coming to India to play the World Cup are very less. Sethi had said, if the Indian cricket team does not come to Pakistan to play the Asia Cup, then there is a possibility that the government of Pakistan may not allow the team to participate in the World Cup. In such a situation only cricket will suffer. However, meanwhile, there have also been reports that Pakistan will come to India for the ODI World Cup if BCCI assures it that it will send Team India to Pakistan for the 2025 Champions Trophy. However, this time nothing has been said from the Indian Cricket Board.
