However, the place for the tournament remains unclear over whether it’ll be played in Pakistan or even the UAE. Pakistan to host 2020 Asia Cup; final place unclear “It is not about cricket only but also about developing our umpires, match referees. Our focus is to strengthen cricket of Asia. Asia is the area for cricket. Afghanistan invested a great deal for cricket and thus they became the complete member state of International Cricket Council (ICC). We’re looking for more countries. Hong Kong Oman and Saudi Arab are doing well. They could bring themselves to the next level. We are attempting to develop championships of these nations,” Ehsan Mani, the former president of ACC added.
