BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday had announced the cancellation of the Asia Cup T20, scheduled to be held in September, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pakistan originally had the hosting rights of the six-team continental event but considering the alarming Covid-19 situation, the PCB had decided to swap it with Sri Lanka.
“Asia Cup cancel ho chuka hai, jo September me tha (Asia Cup, which was to be held in September, has been cancelled),” Ganguly told ‘sports tak’ in an instagram live session.
And the Pakistan Cricket Bard confirmed that they have agreed to host the event in 2022 and Sri Lanka is now expected to host it next year following the cancellation of this year’s edition.
PCB chief Ehsan Mani said the decision was made due to the worsening pandemic.
