Cricinfo, in its story under the headline Decision on Asia Cup venue postponed to March 2023, stated: “In addition, all ACC members are believed to have been asked to seek their own government’s positions on whether their teams can travel to Pakistan.”
The PCB wishes to clarify that no such matters were raised in the meeting, nor did any member indicate any intention to seek government clearance for playing in Pakistan. Sri Lanka has recently visited Pakistan in 2017 and 2019, while Bangladesh has toured Pakistan in 2020.
In the 2023-2027 Future Tours Programme (FTP), which has been agreed and announced by all ICC Members, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have confirmed their tours to Pakistan.
