Victory for Pakistan, U-19 Asia Cup to be held in Malaysia instead of India

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had requested Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to move under 19 Asia Cup from India to Malaysia citing security reasons and ACC has accepted its request. Now the tournament will be held in November in Malaysia.

The PCB had raised its objections to touring India for the Under-19 Asia Cup, which was to be played in Bengaluru in November. Given the tense political climate between India and Pakistan, PCB chairman Najam Sethi, who also heads the ACC, tabled a resolution to get it shifted. The BCCI had already written to the Indian government, seeking clearance to host the event as it would include a team from Pakistan.

No decision on senior Asia Cup tournament has been taken yet which is to be held in India next year.

The Western Region qualifying round for the Under-19 Asia Cup will be hosted by Kuwait, despite discussions around the venue following the diplomatic crisis in the Gulf. The round will include Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain. According to Sethi, the nine teams in the Western Region pool will play each other, including Qatar as well as teams from countries that have broken diplomatic ties with it.
