The Asia Cup 2022, a six-team tournament will be held in UAE between August 27 and September 11.

The much-anticipated tournament will see one of cricket's fiercest rivalries once again take centre stage when the two teams face off on August 28.

The tournament, originally to be played in Sri Lanka, was moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) a few days back following the political and economic crisis in the island nation.
