Asia Cup Cricket Tournament which was planned to be hosted by Sri Lanka, will be held in some other country due to security reasons according to the sport sources.

Due to the prevailing economic crisis and the possible threat by the protesters, some are of the opinion whether such a large event can be held in the country.

If Sri Lanka is unable to host the event, most probably the event will take place either in Bangladesh or UAE.

If we lose the host, it will have a bad impact on the tourism of the country since 11 countries will participate in the event where around 5000 foreign visitors are planning to visit Sri Lanka.

Even though Sri Lanka still has not given up on retaining the host ship, Asian Cricket Council is not happy with the Sri Lanka Cricket Authority.
