December 05, 2020

The Asia Cup 2020 had to postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic.Pakistan was scheduled to host the Asia Cup but the PCB CEO Wasim Khan said the tournament will be hosted by Sri Lanka in 2021 while Pakistan will play host of it in 2022.

Sri Lanka have the rights to hold Asia Cup in 2021. 

"The next Asia Cup will be hosted in Sri Lanka in June and we have got hosting rights now for the 2022 Asia Cup," PCB CEO Wasim Khan was quoted as saying by the PTI.

Pakistan could be slightly disappointed that they have to wait till 2022 to host the Asia Cup as the country is striving hard to get international cricket back on a regular basis. Pakistan has not hosted regular international matches in its soil after the terror attack on Sri Lankan cricketers.

But recently, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have visited Pakistan for a few matches and Australia and England are set to land in Pakistan in 2021 for some one-day, T20 matches.
