The much-anticipated Asia Cup cricket 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.
The Asia Cup, which was last played in 2018, will be played in the T20 format and India, who are the defending champions, will enter the 2022 edition of the competition as favourites.
