Asia Cup 2023: Earlier this year, there were reports that India might travel to Pakistan for the next edition of the Asia Cup that will be played in 2023. Pakistan who crashed out of the knockouts in the UAE edition will host the Asia Cup. Speculations were rife that the team is willing to travel to Pakistan but Jay Shah has dropped a major update and has cleared the air around India's participation. BCCI secretary Jay Shah has said that India will not travel to Pakistan and they might opt out of the Asia Cup. 

Earlier this year, the England & Wales Cricket Board had offered the BCCI and PCB to participate in a bilateral series that will be played on neutral venues. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was still open to the offer, but BCCI's stand on the same remains unclear. With cricketing action returning to Pakistan, there were mild hopes that India might opt to participate in the 2023 edition of the Asia Cup, but as of now, things look pretty bleak as far as India's participation is concerned.

Earlier this year Australia traveled to Pakistan and just before the start of the World Cup England played a seven-match T20 series. With Pakistan hosting cricketing events, it was expected that India would tour their neighbours, but as of now, this prospect seems out of contention. Last year New Zealand was supposed to play a series in Pakistan but backed off at the very last moment. This incident sparked a fresh set of controversy but the Pakistan security officials denied any kind of threat looming over the Kiwis. After the conclusion of the T20 World Cup, the English team will travel to Pakistan again for a Test series. The previous edition of the Asia Cup was played in the United Arab Emirates and was contested in the T20 format.
