Asia cup will not be canceled for IPL:

Chairman of PCB(Pakistan Cricket Board) ‘Ehsaan Mani’ released a podcast video in which Ehsaan talked about Asia cup and IPL crisis. He said It is unacceptable to cancel or call off the tournament just because of the IPL tournament. It is not only India and Pakistan’s concern.

A total of six countries will participate in the Asia cup which is supposed to start from September 24 to Oct. 6. Pakistan was going to host Asia cup but due to India’s objection, it then shifted to Dubai. Pakistan doesn’t want India to take advantage of its superiority in world cricket.

“Asia cup is important for the development of Asian Cricket”,

Mani:Ehsaan mani talked about the importance of the Asia Cup for the Asian cricket boards. It is not clear yet if the tournament will organize or not but I assure if the situation of COVID-19 comes under control then the tournament will happen for sure.

“The fund from this tournament is very important for the development of sports of its member countries for the next two years”, added Mani.
