About Asia Cup
The Asia Cup is the premier international cricket tournament in Asia. It is organized by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and is contested by the top 10 teams in Asia. The tournament is held every four years, and the current champions are Bangladesh, who won the 2018 tournament.
The first Asia Cup was held in 1956 in Pakistan. The tournament was originally a round-robin format, with the top two teams advancing to the final. However, the format has changed several times over the years. In the 1980s, the tournament was expanded to include more teams, and a knockout stage was introduced. The current format, which was introduced in 2004, features a group stage followed by a Super Four stage and a final.
The Asia Cup has been dominated by a few teams over the years. India has won the tournament a record 7 times, followed by Pakistan with 5 titles. Sri Lanka has won the tournament 3 times, and Bangladesh and South Korea have each won the tournament once.
The Asia Cup is a major event in the cricket calendar, and it is often seen as a precursor to the Cricket World Cup. The tournament is a great opportunity for the top teams in Asia to test themselves against each other, and it is also a chance for the emerging teams to make a name for themselves.
The 2023 Asia Cup is scheduled to be held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka from August 30 to September 17. The tournament will feature 6 teams: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and the United Arab Emirates.
The teams will be divided into two groups of three, with each team playing each other team in their group once. The top two teams from each group will advance to the Super Four stage, where they will play each other once. The top two teams from the Super Four stage will then play in the final.
The 2023 Asia Cup is expected to be a closely contested tournament, with several teams capable of winning the title. India will be the favorites, but Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh will also be strong contenders. Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates will be the underdogs, but they will be looking to cause an upset.
