If all goes well, one could see cricketers from India and Pakistan teaming up in a rebooted version of the Afro-Asia Cup in mid-2023. The Afro-Asia Cup hadn’t been played after 2005 and 2007 while India and Pakistan haven’t played a bilateral series since 2012-13. 


The two teams now face each other only in ICC tournaments, barring the World Test Championship. According to a report on Forbes.com, players from India and Pakistan could be playing in the same team with the Afro-Asia Cup set to make a comeback in the T20 format in June-July 2023. Nothing is confirmed about how the tournament will happen.
