Will not visit Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023: Jay Shah

BCCI secretary Jay Shah on Wednesday refuted the reports suggesting that he would tour Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023.

“I have not agreed to anything. This is just plain miscommunication. Probably done deliberately or mischievously. I’ll not be making any visit,” Jay Shah was quoted as saying by ‘News18 CricketNext’.

Earlier on Tuesday, BCCI secretary Shah and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf met on the sidelines of the ongoing ICC meet in Durban where the two discussed on the issue of the upcoming Asia Cup and ODI World Cup.

Following the meeting, several media reports claimed that Shah accepted Ashraf’s invitation to visit the neighbouring nation for fixtures of the continental tournament.

Meanwhile, IPL chairman and CEC representative of BCCI at ICC, Arun Dhumal also denied such reports saying: “Whatever the reports, they’re completely false.”

Meanwhile, the ‘hybrid model’ of the Asia Cup 2023 event will stay, where Pakistan will host four games while Sri Lanka will host nine games including all knockouts and the final.
