Asia Cup 2020 has been canceled: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly

Asia Cup 2020 has been canceled: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly

New Delhi, Jul 8 (UNI) BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, on Wednesday informed that Asia Cup 2020 set to be held in UAE this year in September has been canceled.

The announcement comes ahead of a scheduled Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting on July 9.

"The Asia Cup has been cancelled. It's difficult to say which will be India's first international series," Ganguly said in an Instagram live chat.

"We've done our preparations but we can't do much till we know the government rules. We are not in a hurry because the health of players is of the utmost importance. We are monitoring things monthly," said former skipper.

In the same live session, Ganguly once again spoke of wanting to hold the 2020 edition of the IPL in India itself but added that they would wait for a decision on the T20 World Cup for that to happen.

"(If the T20 World Cup gets cancelled) then we will try everything to stage the IPL. It is very important for Indian cricket. We will try to host it in India," said BCCI President.

"The cancellation of T20 World Cup will happen soon because all countries are asking for a direction from ICC. We'll know by mid-July. My gut-feeling is saying it's tough."

The former India skipper had earlier revealed that the board were looking to bring cricket back as soon as possible.
