BCCI wants assurance from PCB on the World Cup visit to approve the Asia Cup ‘hybrid’ model

The deadlock regarding the Asia Cup 2023 is ending as the Pakistan Cricket Board is gaining support from all other Asian nations. The Board of Control for Cricket in India is also willing to go ahead with the "hybrid" model of the Asia Cup. However, the BCCI has put forth a new condition, as they want a written assurance from the PCB on visiting India for the World Cup 2023 in October.
While any official decision will only be taken after the BCCI’s SGM on May 27, Pakistani media reported that the BCCI is ready to soften its tone. As we all know, BCCI was determined that the entire Asia Cup must be moved out of Pakistan and should be played at a neutral venue, but now that Pakistan has hit back, threatening to boycott the World Cup, BCCI has had a change in stance.
Other Asian countries are also giving a nod to PCB’s new hybrid model, and BCCI is set to soften the tone. At the Special General Meeting in Ahmedabad, BCCI is likely to officially accept PCB’s proposal.
