Asia Cup 2022 shifted to UAE from Sri Lanka: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly

Asia Cup 2022 will be played in the T20 format and will most likely be held from Aug 27 to Sep 11 in UAE, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly informed. 

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has confirmed that this year’s Asia Cup will take place in the UAE instead of Sri Lanka.

Speaking to media persons after BCCI’s Apex Council meeting in Mumbai, Ganguly said that UAE is the only place where rain won’t play spoilsport during the August-September window.

On Wednesday, Sri Lanka Cricket informed the Asian Cricket Council of their inability to host the multi-nation tournament due to the turmoil in the country.

Even the Lanka Premier League was postponed earlier due to the economic and political upheaval in the island nation.
