The event will be held in the T20 format as the teams will take part in the T2o World Cup later this year. The next edition of the Asia Cup will be played in Pakistan, the ACC has also confirmed.
The ACC has confirmed that this year’s Asia Cup will be held between August 27 to September 11. At the same time, the executive committee of the ACC has extended the tenure of the current president Joy Shah by one year until 2024.
Joy Shah took over the rule of the ACC head from Bangladesh’s Nazmul Hassan in early 2021.
