BCCI creates another drama in Asia Cup 2023

  • Indian cricket team expresses concerns about hotel accommodations in Dambulla, Sri Lanka, amid the Asia Cup 2023.
  • Heavy rains force rescheduling of the tournament’s second leg, with original venues submerged.
  • Star Sports, the broadcaster, also voices dissatisfaction with hotel arrangements in Hambantota.
  • Pakistani Cricket Board and Asian Cricket Council grapple with mounting challenges, including venue changes and accommodation issues.

The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and Indian cricket team has thrust hotel accommodations in Sri Lanka’s Dambulla city into the spotlight, raising concerns amid the backdrop of the ongoing Asia Cup 2023. These apprehensions have emerged amidst the already challenging circumstances posed by heavy rains, prompting a rescheduling of the tournament’s second leg.

The crux of the matter lies in the Indian team’s assertion that the hotels available in Dambulla fail to meet their accustomed standards. This development comes on the heels of concerns voiced by broadcasting giant Star Sports, who also expressed dissatisfaction with their hotel arrangements in Hambantota, where upcoming games are scheduled.

These concerns not only place the Pakistani Cricket Board (PCB) in a difficult position but also exacerbate the dilemmas faced by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). The originally chosen venue, Premadasa International Cricket Stadium, now sits inundated by rainwater, necessitating discussions about alternative venues within Colombo, which boasts two potential stadiums to host matches.

Media reports indicate that an emergency meeting convened by the ACC aims to grapple with this issue, exploring all conceivable solutions. ACC emphasized, “Our priority is to ensure a seamless and successful continuation of the Asia Cup. We are considering all possible options to address the concerns.”

In a sporting world that demands adaptability, the Asia Cup 2023 navigates unforeseen challenges, making swift decisions imperative for the competition’s integrity and the satisfaction of all stakeholders.
