India To Face Pakistan In Asia Cup In 2022

The Asia Cup is about to return after being closed for two years. This time the competition will be in Sri Lanka. The game will run from August 26 to September 11. However, the qualifying phase will start on August 20. This time the competition will be played in T20 format. Though the schedule is yet to be finalized, India and Pakistan are likely to face each other in the Asia Cup before the T20 World Cup.

This Asia Cup is held every two years. The competition was scheduled for September 2020 but was canceled due to Corona’s overdose. The tournament was scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka in June 2021.

That, too, was canceled. Pakistan was responsible for hosting the 2022 Asia Cup. After a meeting last year, the Asian Cricket Council announced that the 2022 tournament would be held in Sri Lanka. Pakistan will host next year.

The tournament has been played 14 times since 1984. India has won seven times. They have won the last two times. Sri Lanka is the second most successful team. They have won this competition five times.

Ramiz Raza Has Another Idea 

Not only fans of the two countries but also Australia are excited to watch the India vs Pakistan cricket match. So much so that they may even offer to host a tri-nation series on their ground. Recently, the head of the board, Nick Hawkley, said this.

India-Pakistan is not seen playing against each other except in the only ICC competition. The last bilateral series was in 2012. Pakistan came to play one-day series on Indian soil. But last January, Pak board chief Ramiz Raja made a fancy proposal. He said India, Pakistan, Australia and England could host a four-nation tournament. Each country will host the competition in turn.
