The Asia Cup 2022 tournament will be underway in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from August 27. The six-team tournament will have India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and a qualifier in action across two groups. The tournament is also returning in the T20 format for the first time since 2016. First match will be played between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in August 27 at Dubai.
With the current situation in Sri Lanka, the Asian Cricket Council shifted the ASIA CUP 2022 to UAE but hosting rights remain with Sri Lanka only.
Sri Lanka Cricket Secretary, Mohan de Silva said that it is unfortunate that Sri Lanka would not be able to host the Asia Cup as scheduled this year, but nevertheless Sri Lanka was assured of the US $ 6 million that would have accrued to the country had the tournament been hosted here. “Sri Lanka will still receive the US $ 2.5 million hosting fee, 1.5 million ticket sale fees and 2 million fee due to every participating team.
The 15th edition of the ASIA CUP 2022 has been scheduled from 27 August 2022 to 11 September 2022.
