Asia Cup 2022: With less than 2 days to go for what promises to be one cracker of a tournament, the Asia Cup has now got its sixth team that will join India and Pakistan in Group A. The marquee event will start on August 27, 2022, and will see Sri Lanka and Afghanistan have a go at each other in the opener. On the other hand, India and Pakistan who are stationed in Group A are now joined by Hong Kong who remained unbeaten throughout the qualifiers and will now rub shoulders with the big boys of international cricket. The Asia Cup which was earlier scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka was later pushed to UAE due to logistical issues caused by the financial and economic crisis in the island nation.
