A board member of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has dismissed Zaka Ashraf’s rejection of the hybrid model for the Asia Cup, according to The Hindustan Times. The board member, who remains anonymous, stated that the ACC has accepted the Asia Cup model and no changes will be made. The hybrid model was proposed by Pakistan after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to tour Pakistan last year. Under this model, some games would be played in Pakistan and others in Sri Lanka. Pakistan’s proposal was finally accepted by the ACC on June 15 after discussions and a threat to boycott the World Cup. However, Ashraf, who is expected to become the PCB chairman again, criticized the hybrid model, calling it an “injustice” to Pakistan. He plans to review the decision once officially elected and make changes to the Asia Cup schedule. It is anticipated that this decision could lead to a confrontation between the PCB and the BCCI. The Hindustan Times also suggests that the BCCI may play hardball and not compromise on the agreed plan.
