The BCCI might have decided against sending their teams for this year’s Asian Games in China but the Pakistan Cricket Board has already submitted a shortlist of 30 players with the organisers.

“Pakistan will be taking part in the Asian Games where the cricket competition is being held for the first time,” a PCB official said.

He said the national selectors had finalised a list of 30 players for the multi-sporting event and had already sent the same to the authorities before the deadline of March 31.

“The Asian Games is one of the biggest regional sporting events in the world and definitely our team will take part in it,” PCB director-general cricket Javed Miandad said.
