The Asia Cup which is the biggest cricket tournament in Asia played under the Asian Cricket Council, is set to start on August 30th and end on September 16th. This is the 16th edition of the Asia Cup and this time it is hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Formally, Pakistan was the only host of the Asia Cup 2023, but due to the Indian team’s concerns about playing in Pakistan, the PCB announced a hybrid model, which was accepted by the Asian Cricket Council. According to this model, the first 4 matches will be played in Pakistan and the other 9 in Sri Lanka, including the Grand Finale.
