Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) told the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) on Wednesday that the board is not in a position to host the upcoming T20 Asian Cup due to the economic and political crisis in the country. SLC also recently postponed the third season of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) due to the current crisis.
A source from the ACC said: “Sri Lanka has told Cricket that due to the current political and economic situation in their country, especially when it comes to foreign currencies, it is not an ideal situation for them to host this major six-team event in the country. It is. SLC have informed that they would like to host the tournament in the UAE or any other country.
