There is a bad news for cricket lover who loves to watch high voltage cricket match between India and Pakistan. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has refused to send its team to the Asia Emerging Nations Cup in April this year at Pakistan. After the BCCI’s refusal, there is still a question on Pakistan hosting. There is a possibility that the Asia Emerging Nations Cup can now be organized in Sri Lanka or Bangladesh. An official of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that India is not ready to send Indian team to Pakistan for the tournament at any cost. For this reason, Asia Emerging Cup can be organized in Sri Lanka or Bangladesh. We are ready to organize this tournament in April and hope that all the countries will participate in it.
