England could be Asia Cup 2023 venue

Pakistan was supposed to be the host for the competition. However, India is not ready to travel to the nation and hence, a hybrid approach was considered with UAE hosting India’s games. That said, the situation in Pakistan is not great right now and even Bangladesh and Sri Lanka supported BCCI’s proposal to move the tournament out of Pakistan entirely. Sri Lanka was also considered an option but even that is not looking likely right now. Since PCB is the host, the board is looking at other options now.

It now appears that England has also joined the race. The PCB Chairman has confirmed the same as per a few reports. However, it needs to be seen if the identity of the tournament would be fulfilled if the competition is held in a European nation. Also, for all the teams involved, it would not be an ideal preparation for the 2023 ODI World Cup because pitches in subcontinent are different when compared to those in England. It now needs to be seen if England really comes up as the venue for the event. In that scenario, it will actually be interesting from a few perspectives.
