The India VS Pakistan cricket games are always a treat to watch. These games are intense, and the players put in all their efforts to make them worth the hype. The players have always made it a point to make these games as entertaining as possible. With that being said, BCCI secretary Jay Shah has confirmed that an India VS Pakistan game will take place during the 50-over Asia Cup in 2023. Here is a look at the latest updates regarding the same: 

India VS Pakistan: Asia Cup 2023 Game: 

The ACC (Asian Cricket Council) announced its schedule for this calendar year. The Asia Cup 2023 was also announced but the venue and the exact schedule haven’t been announced. The reason for not announcing the venue is the political rift between India and Pakistan which are the powerhouses of cricket in Asia.

The Asia Cup 2023 hosting bid was awarded to Pakistan but the BCCI is a bit skeptical about sending its team to the country because of the unfortunate incident which happened with the Sri Lankan team in 2009. But an India VS Pakistan ODI will take place in 2023, that is more than certain.

On the other hand, former PCB chief Ramiz Raja had claimed that if the BCCI doesn’t permit its players to play in Pakistan, it will lead to the Pakistan Cricket Board boycotting the ODI World Cup 2023 which is slated to be held in India.
