The much-anticipated Asia Cup 2023 is all geared up to commence on August 30, with Pakistan and Nepal battling each other in the tournament opener. The continental event will be jointly hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka in a hybrid model and will be played in One Day International (ODI) format, unlike the previous T20I edition.
It is worth mentioning that Sri Lanka claimed victory over Pakistan in the final of last year’s Asia Cup, securing a win by a margin of 23 runs in Dubai and will enter the 2023 edition as reigning champions.
The Asia Cup 2023 will see a total of six participating in the event, namely Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan. All these teams will be divided into groups of two, and the side with the lowest standing in each group after the initial stage will be eliminated, while the remaining four will proceed to the Super Four stage.
