Bangladesh confirm Asia Cup berth

Update : 20 Mar 2022, 10:34

The next edition of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Asia Cup T20 will be held in August in Sri Lanka, the ACC has confirmed on Saturday.

The last edition of the Asia Cup took place in the UAE in 2018 when India won the title beating Bangladesh in the final, reports UNB.

The Asia Cup was scheduled to be played in 2020 in Sri Lanka. But due to the pandemic hiatus, the schedule was changed twice.

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.

The committee has also upgraded the status of Qatar to the full member of the ACC from its associate status.
