The president of the Asian Cricket Council has also confirmed that the event will take place at a neutral venue. However, after that, a statement came from the Pakistan Cricket Board stating that the decision was made without even consulting the ACC members and the board has also said that it could affect Pakistan’s participation in the 2023 World Cup which is scheduled to be played in India.
