Listen to the story
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has cast doubts over the organisation of Asia Cup 2021. The tournament was scheduled to take place in June later this year in Sri Lanka but Mani believes the competition might not be possible as India are likely to cement their place in the final of the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship. “Asia Cup was set to go last year but it got postponed to this year,” he said while talking to the media in Lahore. “Right now, it looks like Asia Cup won’t be going ahead this year [as well]. Largely because of WTC finals which are set to go ahead in June. Sri Lanka had said that they would try to host the tournament in June [as well].” PCB CEO Wasim Khan also confirmed that the boards are waiting for the confirmation. “It looks like India has reached the finals and they will clash against New Zealand,” he said. “This is why the Asia Cup set to be played in Sri Lanka won’t go ahead. We are waiting for confirmation but if it does not go ahead, we are planning for the future.”
