India to Boycott Asia Cup if Venue is Pakistan

India cricket board BCCI has made it clear that they want Asia cup 2020 to be held on any neutral venue they said that they will boycott if the venue is Pakistan. Speaking to the IANS news report, the Indian cricket board said that it is not possible for the Indian cricket team to travel to Pakistan for the Asia cup due to tension between both nations.

The BCCI official statement

The question isn’t about the PCB hosting the tournament. It is about the venue and as things stand now, it is quite clear that we would need a neutral venue. There is no way that an Indian team can visit Pakistan to even participate in a multi-nation event like the Asia Cup. If the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is ok with an Asia Cup minus India then it is a different ball game. But if India is to participate in the Asia Cup, then the venue cannot be Pakistan.”
