Asia Cup 2023 Points Table
The Asia Cup 2023 is taking place in Pakistan and Sri Lanka from August 30 to September 17.
Not all Asia Cup matches will occur in Pakistan due to security concerns. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) declined to send their team to Pakistan.
Pakistan is placed in Group A with Nepal and India. In Group B, there are Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka.
While four matches will be held in Pakistan, Sri Lanka will host nine matches, including the final.
Unlike previous years where T20 and ODI formats alternated, the 2023 Asia Cup will follow the 50-over format. This format aims to aid teams in preparing for the upcoming World Cup in India later this year.
The reigning champions of the 50-over Asia Cup are India, who secured victory in the last edition held in 2018.
