The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is directly blaming the BCCI for the delay in finalizing the venue for the 2010 Asia Cup.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is facing ignorance from the BCCI on the issue of finalizing the venue, the job of which lies in the hands of the BCCI Secretary, N. Srinivasan.
The PCB Chairman, Ejaz Butt, is feeling sidelined as the ACC Chairman because he is unable to get the BCCI to talk firm about the Asia Cup which is seeing an uncertain future. Devised to help associate nations to participate with the big league players from Asia to raise funds, at the moment, the Asia Cup does not seem a priority for the BCCI.
The absence of talk has also rendered redundant hopes of Butt to revisit the issue of holding a bilateral series between India and Pakistan, which has suffered since India refused to tour Pakistan after the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai.
The last Pakistan hosted the Asia Cup in 2008, but they failed to convince the cricket world to visit the country for the ICC Champions Trophy which was eventually moved a year later this year to South Africa.
