BCCI has criticized the scheduling of Asia Cup which is all set to begin on 15th of September in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
 
As per the schedule released two days back, India is to play Pakistan a day after they play a qualifier.
 
The Virat Kohli-led side will be playing a qualifier on 18th of September and then Pakistan on 19th of September.
 
BCCI officials have termed the decision to make India play on two consecutive days as 'mindless'.
 
They called for changes in schedule.
 
They said, "This is unacceptable and has to be revisited. May be for the organizers it is just a money-spinning game but for us, it is important that there be equity in scheduling."
 
Pakistan is playing a game against a qualifier on 16 September and then get a two-day break before they play the arch-rivals India.
 
There are two groups in Asia Cup - Group A and Group B. While Group A consists of India, Pakistan, and qualifier, the other group includes Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.
 
UAE, Singapore, Oman, Nepal, Malaysia and Hong Kong will be fighting for one spot in the tournament.
