An emergency meeting of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is taking place in Bahrain to discuss the future of Pakistan’s hosting rights for the 2019 Asia Cup. Najam Sethi, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), requested the meeting. Jay Shah, secretary of the Indian Cricket Board, has traveled to Bahrain to attend the conference on behalf of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

There is, however, a slim chance that Pakistan will host the Asia Cup in September, according to sources within the BCCI. If the event goes on, it may be moved to Sri Lanka or the United Arab Emirates, with the PCB still holding the hosting rights.

We Will Not Travel To Pakistan As No Go-Ahead From Government Provided: BCCI Source

“Jay is in Bahrain for the ACC meeting. The BCCI’s stand will not change. We will not be travelling to Pakistan as we haven’t got any go-ahead from the government,” a BCCI source stated.

The BCCI has said that it would not visit Pakistan since the Indian government has not given its clearance.

Since the most recent bombings in Peshawar, security fears have increased once more. The Asia Cup destination was not listed in the ACC chairman Shah’s earlier presentation of the continental body’s schedule, which prompted Sethi to claim that Shah had taken a “unilateral choice.”

The ACC formally refuted these claims, claiming that the PCB was unable to respond to many emails sent to it requesting suggestions for the schedule.

Shah, who is also the head of the BCCI, formally announced that India will not be going to Pakistan for the tournament in October of last year. Ramiz Raja, the previous head of the PCB, had warned that Pakistan would skip the 50-over World Cup that was scheduled to take place in India this year.
