Asia Cup 2023 Cricket Host Country
Though Pakistan has been offered the opportunity to host the Asia Cup 2023 Cricket series, the competition may shift to a location that does not favour any specific team. As the political scenario between India and Pakistan is quite tense, Mr Jay Shah, the secretary of the Indian Cricket Team BCCI, would not prefer the Indian cricket team to go to Pakistan.
The ICC provides a major income share to the BCCI. Hence, the competition will be pointless if India does not participate in this series. For this reason, it is expected that the ACC will shift the tournament to either Sri Lanka or the United Arab Emirates so that both Pakistan and India can participate.

Here is the list of expected cricket teams to participate in the competition:
