MUMBAI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is unlikely to take part in the 2021 edition of the Asia Cup, which is scheduled to be hosted by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in June in the Emerald Isles. 

The BCCI has decided to pull out of the event to make more space in its international calendar for conducting the bilateral series that were postponed last year owing to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. What is also worth noting is that the Indian board has little enthusiasm for the tournament on account of arch enemy Pakistan also taking part.
