Pakistan have hosted many games this year, after being barred from hosting international cricket since 2009 terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus. They organised the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), then a World XI side consisting some of the big international names across the world came to Pakistan for the first international T20 series since 2009. Recently, the Lankans also visited the nation for a three-match T20 series in a beautiful gesture to support the revival of the game in the sub-continent
Recently the PCB announced a proposal of hosting ACC Emerging Cup at home which will involve all the junior players from all the cricketing Asian countries. But as per the reports from the Pakistani media, both ban Cricket Board (BCB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have clearly refused to support this whole idea organised by the PCB.
The Indian Board has always been reluctant of playing any type of cricket against Pakistan in the past few years. It is also believed that both India and Bangladesh were not present in the meeting where the tournament was proposed
On 29th October, it was decided that Pakistan will host the tournament in the ACC meeting. But none of the members from Bangladesh and India were present,” said a member from the PCB as quoted by bd crictime. “We want to host the tournament at any cost. We will try our best to host the Asian Emerging Nations Cup,” the member added on behalf of the PCB.
