Pakistan, Sri Lanka given go-ahead as venues for 2023 Asia Cup

Asia Cup 2023 set to be played in Pakistan and Sri Lanka

The hybrid format for the 2023 Asia Cup has been approved by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), which means Pakistan and Sri Lanka will host the regional competition. The remaining nine games will be played in Sri Lanka, with four games taking place in Pakistan.

At a meeting of the ACC presided over by Jay Shah, the model’s approval, requested by the designated host Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), was approved. The competition will take place between August 31 and September 17. The six participating teams have been split into two groups for the championship. Each group will advance two teams.

In order to guarantee the opportunity for three highly anticipated India-Pakistan matchups throughout the 13-match competition, India and Pakistan are predicted to be placed in the same group. The Pakistani portion of the competition will take place in Lahore. The locations in Sri Lanka, however, have yet to be disclosed. The ACC and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is thought to be contemplating transferring the matches to Hambantota and Pallekele after realising that Colombo may have unfavourable weather during the first part of September, reports Live Cricket Score.

The event, which is viewed as a warm-up for the World Cup in India in October and November, will also feature competition from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Nepal in addition to India and Pakistan.
