Soon, the ACC will probably make a decision regarding Pakistan’s hybrid model for the Asia Cup.It is anticipated that the ACC would adopt the hybrid model that was recommended by the PCB and will make a pronouncement on Tuesday.Press Trust of India, an Indian news agency, said that the hybrid concept proposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the Asia Cup 2023 is likely to be adopted, but only on the condition that Sri Lanka serve as the tournament’s neutral location.The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is reportedly planning to issue an official announcement regarding this matter on Tuesday.

Under the terms of this hybrid mode format, Pakistan will only be able to host four of the 2018 tournament’s matches at their own venue, while Sri Lanka would play host to the other matches.”Oman Cricket board chief Pankaj Khimji, one of the respected ACC executive board members, was entrusted to find a solution as most countries didn’t want a hybrid model,” an ACC board member told the news agency on the condition of anonymity. “Oman Cricket board chief Pankaj Khimji, one of the respected ACC executive board members, was entrusted to find a solution.””However, as of right now, the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore will be the location of four non-India games.
Super Four tournament
Pakistan will play Nepal, Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan, Afghanistan will take on Sri Lanka, and Sri Lanka will play Bangladesh.Either Pallekele or Galle will serve as the venue for both of the matches between India and Pakistan that make up the Super Four tournament.The competition will take place between the 1st and 17th of September, and Lahore will serve as the host city for the Pakistani phase of the competition.Following the successful implementation of the hybrid format for the Asia Cup, it is highly possible that Pakistan will also compete in the World Cup in India this year.Due to the fact that it will serve as practise for the One-Day International World Cup, the Asia Cup in 2023 will be a 50-over competition.
At the Asia Cup, Pakistan, India, and Nepal will compete against one another in Group 1, while the defending champions Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan will compete in Group 2.The top two teams in each group will advance to the Super Four stage of the tournament, which will be structured similarly to how it was last year.It is important to remember that the PCB came up with the idea for the hybrid model after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said they would not send their side to Pakistan to compete in the Asia Cup.
India and Pakistan
Because to the tense relations between India and Pakistan, Pakistan has not been on India’s trip itinerary since 2008.When Pakistan travelled to India in 2012 for a set of limited-overs matches, it was the last time the bitter rivals faced each other in a bilateral series.In the recent past, the only time these two nations have competed against one another was in international and continental competitions.
