The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is reportedly exploring a hybrid model for the ICC World Cup scheduled in India from October to November this year.
This comes after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup this year due to no clearance from their government.
In response, the PCB has also resisted playing their World Cup matches in India this year, and talks have begun regarding a neutral venue for matches against Pakistan during the ICC World Cup.
According to ESPNcricinfo, Bangladesh will likely emerge as a neutral venue for Pakistan.
