Ehsan Mani, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, has said that the Asia Cup could be postponed till 2023 if India qualify for the ICC World Test Championship final that is scheduled to be played at Lord’s from June 18 to 22. While New Zealand have already sealed a position in the final, one of India and Australia will qualify to play the ultimate game at Lord’s.

While the qualification scenario will depend on the outcome of the fourth Test between India and England, Mani has stated that “the way things look most probably the Asia Cup will be postponed until 2023”. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) aspires to hold the Asia Cup in the month of June this year.

"Asia Cup was set to go last year but it got postponed to this year. Right now, it looks like Asia Cup won't be going ahead this year as the WTC finals are set to go ahead in June. Sri Lanka had said that they would try to host the tournament in June. The dates are clashing. We think the tournament would not be going ahead, and we might have to push the tournament to 2023," Mani told reporters in Karachi during a press conference

Meanwhile, Mani has also spoken to the ICC and the governing council has assured that PCB will receive written assurances for visa from the BCCI by next month. The visa assurances will not only be for all its players, but also officials, fans and journalists for the upcoming T20 Cup World Cup in India this year.
