Mumbai: India will insist on a neutral venue for the Asia Cup to be held in Pakistan next year. After the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday, the BCCI came to the conclusion that it would not travel to Pakistan for the continental championship and sought to shift the tournament to a neutral venue.

Pakistan is not the right venue for us for the Asia Cup and we have decided not to travel to Pakistan. We have decided that we will play at a neutral venue, BCCI secretary and ACC president Jay Shah said.

The 2022 edition of the Asia Cup allotted to Sri Lanka was held in the UAE. The 2023 edition will be played in the ODI format, hosted by Pakistan. The BCCI had initially put the option of traveling to Pakistan but Shah clarified that the question of playing in Pakistan does not arise.
