Pakistan Cricket Board chief Ehsan Mani on Friday said that India supported our bid but the venues will be decided later. Our preference is to have the matches in Pakistan if the Indian government gives permission to the Indian board to send its team to Pakistan for the tournament. If not, the UAE is the second option.
Next year’s Asia Cup is scheduled for September before the World T20 in Australia.
India had hosted the last Asia Cup in UAE last year after Pakistan refused to travel across the border.
