India and Pakistan clash over all these years offered unlimited entertainment to cricket fans and provided numerous unforgettable moments. These epic encounters generate intense excitement since the neighboring nations play against each other only in ICC tournaments and the Asia Cup. The political and cross-border tensions have suspended the bilateral ties between the two countries and built massive anticipation. Fans go berserk not just on the match day but even after the game result. Now that the Asia Cup 2023 is just a few days away, Cricket’s fiercest rivalry gears up to unleash yet again on September 2. A victory will boost team confidence ahead of the World Cup in India this year. Two more games between the two teams are possible if they qualify in the group level and Super 4 stage. A final match with India and Pakistan will make the event a blockbuster.
Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka, will host the much-awaited contest. India’s unwillingness to travel to Pakistan, the hosting nation, was later moved to Sri Lanka. Thus, Pakistan and Sri Lanka jointly host the Asia Cup. India and Pakistan have played 16 games in Asia Cup so far, where India dominated with a 9-6 lead in the 15 matches. In the last two games played in Asia Cup 2022, both teams have won one each. India emerged as the most successful team in the Asia Cup with seven titles, followed by Sri Lanka with six trophies. Pakistan won the championship twice. Bangladesh appeared thrice in the Asia Cup final and lost all three. While Sri Lanka played the maximum number of Asia Cups (15), Pakistan and India played 14.
Besides the regular five Asian countries India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, Nepal enters the championship this year. By winning the 2023 ACC Men’s Premiere League, Nepal qualified to debut in this edition of the Asia Cup. Six teams get divided into two groups, Group A (Pakistan, India, and Nepal) and Group B with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. The tournament will have 13 matches with six group-stage games and as many Super 4s. The top two from Super 4 will play in the final for the coveted title. For the first time in Asia Cup history, this tournament is hosted by multiple countries. Pakistan will host four matches and nine games in Sri Lanka. The championship is played across four venues, Multan, Pallekele, Lahore, and Colombo.
While Pakistan and Bangladesh have announced their squads for the Asia Cup, other teams are yet to declare.
