Asia Cup 2023: Now the clouds of danger have deepened on the Asia Cup. According to reports, it is now impossible to organize the Asia Cup in September this year as Pakistan's hybrid model has been rejected. Pakistan had given a hybrid model for organizing the Asia Cup, which has been rejected by all the other members of the Asian Cricket Council. As soon as this model is rejected, it is now believed that Pakistan will not play the Asia Cup.

Now the question is that if Pakistan does not play the Asia Cup then what will be its disadvantages? The absence of Pakistan in the Asia Cup can cause a lot of loss to the broadcasters. India-Pakistan is considered to be the biggest match of the Asia Cup. The eyes of the world are on this match. The ad money also doubles in this match. Obviously, when there will be no India-Pakistan clash, the broadcasters can withdraw from this tournament.

Was it a hybrid model of Pakistan?

Now let us tell you that what was the hybrid model of Pakistan? According to PCB's proposed hybrid model, Pakistan was to host 3 or 4 Asia Cup matches in its own country and India would play its matches in neutral territory instead of Pakistan. But the BCCI was not ready for this and Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have also supported the world's most powerful board. According to the news of PTI, now the clouds of crisis are hovering over this tournament. By the way, Pakistan has two options that either it leaves the hosting of this tournament or it withdraws from the tournament itself.

Second series will be played without Pakistan!

There are also reports that in case of cancellation of the Asia Cup, BCCI may organize a four-nation ODI series. Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and India will play in this series. The series will be of 50 overs and this will be a good opportunity to prepare for the ODI World Cup.

On the other hand, what Pakistan does will remain to be seen. Because if the Asia Cup does not happen, then the Pakistan team can also boycott the World Cup to be held in India. PCB has given such threats earlier also.
