On the first day of the Asia Cup 2023, Pakistan beat Nepal badly in the first match, which took place at Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. This was a great start for Pakistan. But the event brought up another issue: the official jerseys of the teams didn’t have the name of the host country on them. Before the Asia Cup, all of the teams showed off their shirts. One interesting thing that fans noticed was that the host country’s name, Pakistan, wasn’t under the Asia Cup logo. Read out complete details about Why Asia Cup 2023 jerseys don’t have Pakistan’s name down below.
Why Asia Cup 2023 jerseys don’t have Pakistan’s name
Fans were confused about why Pakistan’s name wasn’t on the jerseys, which led to a discussion. This year, the event is being held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This is because India didn’t want to go to the rival country. But the fans remembered that Sri Lanka’s name was on the Asia Cup kits last year, even though the game was in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because the host country was having political and economic problems.
The exception’s reason has finally been discovered by people who work for the relevant officials. They said that the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), which puts on the Asia Cup every year, chose not to put the name of the host country and the year on the jerseys for the 15th Asia Cup, which was held in the UAE last year.
The reason was that the ACC worried about the different shirts since some said Sri Lanka and others just said 2022. Sources say that the ACC chose not to put the name of the host country or the year of the tournament on the jerseys. This was done to make the jerseys more uniform and to get them to more people. They said the tournament’s logo is the only thing on this year’s Asia Cup shirts.
