Pakistan has not played international cricket at home since a terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009. The Bangladesh national cricket team has also visited the country recently after Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. This year’s Asia Cup will be held in Pakistan. The country has threatened that they will not play in the Twenty20 World Cup in India if the Indian team does not go Pakistan to play the Asia Cup.
Earlier, the BCB agreed to visit Pakistan on the condition of giving Bangladesh a chance to host the Asia Cup! But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that they have never had such a deal with the BCB. The country is desperate to host the upcoming Asia Cup in the backyard.
India has objected to playing the Asia Cup in Pakistan from the beginning, even though all other countries agree. They have made it clear that they will not participate in any game on Pakistan soil.
In such a situation, Pakistan talked about hosting the Asia Cup in a neutral venue in Dubai. But India has also objected there. So in the end, Pakistan poses a kind of threat to India. The PCB has said that if India does not participate in the upcoming Asia Cup, Pakistan will not participate in the Twenty20 World Cup.
PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said, "Now we are thinking of hosting the Asia Cup in two venues. If India does not agree then we will not go to India to play the Twenty20 World Cup.
