Pakistan is in no mood to give up its right to host the Asia Emerging Nations Cup in April despite strong resistance from the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI). Besides India, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has also objected to Pakistan hosting the tournament citing security concerns. Pakistan was given hosting rights when the ACC meeting was held in Lahore on October 29,

PCB chief Najam Sethi had made the announcement about Pakistan hosting the Asia Emerging Nations Cup in April when Sri Lanka came to Lahore to play the lone T20 match on October 29.

BCCI and PCB are already at loggerheads over the latter’s decision to file a compensation claim with the ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee.

PCB is seeking around USD 60 million compensation from the BCCI for not honouring a MoU signed between the two boards in 2014 under which both countries were to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023.
