If India skips Asia Cup, Pakistan may skip ICC World Cup T20 2021
New Delhi : PCB chief executive Wasim Khan has dismissed reports which claimed that Pakistan has given up its hosting rights of the T20 Asia Cup. Instead, he claimed that they have bartered the deal that if India skips Asia Cup in Pakistan then their team will skip 2021 T20 World Cup to be hosted in India.
"It is not the prerogative of the PCB or the ICC to change the host as it was the decision of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC)," Wasim was quoted as saying by The Dawn.
"We are currently considering two venues to host the Asia Cup," he added. "If India doesn't come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup, we would also refuse participation in the 2021 T20 World Cup there."
Last week, a couple of media reports had claimed that the BCCI has not budged on its decision to boycott playing on the Pakistan's soil, resulting in Pakistan losing its hosting rights for the upcoming Asia Cup.
Pakistan last year welcomed back Test cricket after a long gap when Sri Lanka toured the nation in December.
