The Asian Cricket Council today made a decision to shift the U-19 Asia Cup tournament from Bengaluru to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) refused to send its team to India.
"The centrally contracted players were given permission to participate in the CPL and English county season subject to recall if the World XI series took place in mid-September", the PCB said in a statement. It is worth mentioning that NA-120 by-election after judicial ouster of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif has resulted into rescheduling of World XI visit which still awaits final clearance.
The Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) is waiting for a response from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on details of proposed security arrangements for the World XI tour next month.

The tournament will feature eight teams, with four - Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka - qualifying automatically.
