ACC Confirmed UAE to Host Asia Cup 2022
Asian Cricket Council ACC has confirmed that the Asia Cup 2022 would be hosted in the UAE – United Arab Emirates. Sri Lanka was set to host this year’s tournament. However, due to the country’s political and economic volatility, it will not be safe to host the worldwide event there.
The Asia Cup will begin on August 27, according the official schedule. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) was enthusiastic about hosting the Asia Cup 2022, however the event was moved to UAE at the last minute. The host will be Sri Lanka. The competition will begin on August 27.
According to an ACC news statement, the Asia Cup 2022 will be contested between August 27 and September 11 in Dubai and Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, as per the prior timetable.

A demoted team will join Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka in Group B. Dubai and Abu Dhabi also hosted the 2018 Asia Cup’s final tournament. In the final of the one-day service, India defeated Bangladesh to win the champion.
