Not full but a glimpse to the Asia Cup, starting from August 11 is for sure. The ACC (Asian Cricket Cup) has given the approval for the matches to happen and will be taking place after four long years. The reason for such a big half can be credited to the disastrous COVID-19 Pandemic due to which not only the Asia Cup but all other pre-planned schedules of the year was disrupted. Coming back to the point, after commencing on the 11th of August, we’ll experience 6 teams in total with the likes of Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and the rest 1 team has to get qualified from the other set of Asian teams such UAE, Kuwait, Hong-Kong, & Singapore. The team qualifying from the last set will get included in the main six team continuing further.
In total 13 matches will be played between all the six teams.
The entire schedule for the Asia Cup 2022 hasn’t been decided yet, but most probably in the first match team that could be expected would be Sri Lanka having the privilege of the being the host nation or the last time’s defending champion, the Indian team who defeated the runner-up’s team Bangladesh by 3 tuns and winning the Asia Cup.
To remind you all, India is dominating the Asia Cup Series by winning it 7 times whereas Sri Lanka is in the second spot by winning it 5-times.
Now, where should expect the host nation to conduct all these matches?
- Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele,
- R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo,
- Galle International Stadium in Galle,
- Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium,
- Dambulla International Stadium
In total, five stadiums could be expected where all the six teams will lock horns.
