In a statement, the ACC said that all of its members will continue to think of Sri Lanka, a country that loves cricket.
The ACC is still committed to helping the sport and all of its fans, and it is very grateful to SLC for working hard to make sure the tournament goes on as planned.
Mr. Jay Shah, President of the ACC, said that every effort was made to hold the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka, but the decision to move it to the UAE was made after a lot of thought.
The UAE will be the new location, but Sri Lanka will still have the right to host. This Asia Cup is very important because it will help Asian countries prepare for the ICC World Cup. I’d like to thank the SLC and the Emirates Cricket Board for their cooperation and understanding.
Mr. Shammi Silva, the president of the SLC, said, “We were very excited to have our Asian neighbors come to Sri Lanka for the much-anticipated Asia Cup.”
Even though I agree with the ACC’s decision to move the Asia Cup to the UAE, given the current situation and the importance of the event, Sri Lanka Cricket will work closely with the ACC and Emirates Cricket Board to make sure that this year’s Asia Cup is still exciting.
