Asia Cup 2020 Host Country News – For your information, the last time the Asia Cup was played in Pakistan was in 2008. The final of that tournament was played between Sri Lanka and India, which Sri Lanka won by a big margin of 100 runs. But the defending champion of the Asia Cup is the Indian team, which defeated Bangladesh in 2018. Significantly, all the big teams are refusing to play in Pakistan due to security reasons.
In such a situation, the BCCI does not want the Indian team to go to Pakistan. The political tension between the two countries is also a big reason behind this.
