Asia Cup 2022

Asia Cup 2022 will start on August 27. It will be the 15th edition of the Asian tournament, and the second one to be played in the T20I format. Asia is one of the most dominant continents in the cricket world, with three different nations from the continent winning the Cricket World Cup and T20 World Cup at least once.


The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) stages the Asia Cup once every two or four years. Asia Cup was last held in 2018. The 2020 edition of the tournament did not happen due to COVID-19 pandemic, and after a four-year break, the tournament will return this year.


History


The Asia Cup started in 1984. Initially, only India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka played in the tournament. Gradually, Bangladesh and Afghanistan became regular participants as well.


Associate members of ICC who come under the ACC have made sporadic appearances at Asia Cup as well, but the trophy has only been won by India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. India have won the most titles (7) and are at the top of the Asia Cup winners list.


Asia Cup 2022 Format


The format of Asia Cup 2022 is the same as the 2018 Asia Cup. Four teams, namely Singapore, Kuwait, Hong Kong and UAE will play in a qualifying tournament in Oman. The winner of that competition will join India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the main tournament.


The organisers have divided the six teams of the main competition into two Asia Cup groups. Group A comprises Pakistan, India and the winner of the qualifier, Hong Kong. Group B consists of Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. The teams will play one match each against the other two teams in their group.


Top two Asia Cup teams from both groups will qualify for the Super Fours round. Those four teams will then battle against each other once, with the top two teams on the Asia Cup 2022 points table qualifying for the final on September 11.


Asia Cup 2022 Venues


Dubai International Stadium and Sharjah Cricket Stadium will host this year’s Asia Cup matches. Dubai will host 10 matches, including the final, while the remaining three games from the Asia Cup schedule will take place in Sharjah.
