Sri Lanka has been into a dilemma – either to host Asia Cup or be out of the rights. Notably, Asia Cup was all set to take place in Pakistan in 2020.
At first, Indo-Pak political conflicts refrained Pakistan from hosting the mega ACC event. Consequently, it was moved to Sri Lanka.
What happened next? Secondly, the rescheduled Asia Cup in the island country for 2020 was once again postponed.
This time, the reason was not the political instability but the worldly threat, the COVID outbreak, that suppressed all sporting activities across the Earth.
The authoritative community stated that the event would be scheduled for June 2021. But as the ICC Test Championship was already underway, the final is expected to be played in June.
It clearly means a clash between the final of the ICC Test Championship and the Asia Cup. It might eliminate Sri Lanka from hosting the event – at least this summer.
Terms and conditions that can proceed Asia Cup in June
However, here are a few terms and conditions which can allow Asia Cup 2021 to proceed normally. We have seen that Ind vs Eng Tests are underway. The two teams are already done with three out of four red-ball matches.
With the last match remaining, if India win or draw the fourth test match against England, the final will be played between Australia and New Zealand.
Australia and New Zealand proceeding with the ICC Test Championship will be dismissing India. As India are part of the Asian continent, they must be a participant in the contest whereas, England, Australia, or New Zealand does not concern.
The ACC tournament will once again be postponed if the men in blue will be the winners of Ind vs Eng 4th Test. It should not be drew wither.
There are 100% chances of the Asian tournament being organized in June if the homesiders India lose against England in the 4th Test.
