Asia Cup 2023 is set to be held in Pakistan but can India participate? As per reports, BCCI will be requesting the Asian Cricket Council to move the next edition’s tournament out of Pakistan. The diplomatic relationship between the two nations may not allow the Indian government to give allow the national team to a Pakistan tour. The BCCI further stated that there won’t be a bilateral tour until 2027.

As per a BCCI officer “At the moment, travelling to Pakistan is out of the equation. The government will only give us permission if it’s an ICC event. So, travelling to Pakistan for Asia Cup is unlikely to materialise. We are already discussing if a change in venue is possible for Asia Cup and we will request the ACC to move the tournament out.”

Asia Cup 2023 is to be held in Pakistan, but will the Indian government allow a Pakistan tour?

India toured Pakistan for the last time in Asia in 2008. The Mumbai attacks in 2008 further worsened the diplomatic ties between India and Pakistan. The BJP government has strictly said that India won’t be having diplomatic ties until Pakistan stops taking funds from terrorist organisations.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah is the ACC chief, he’s under pressure from both nations.
