Asia Cup 2023: All Match Timings And Full Match Schedule Released, Take a look
After a long time of waiting, Jay Shah, secretary of the BCCI and head of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), finally released the schedule for the Asia Cup 2023 last month. On Tuesday, the times of the matches were released.
Shah said last year that India would not go to Pakistan for the event, so this time the game is being played in a combined style. The event will start on August 30 in Multan, Pakistan, with a game between Pakistan and Nepal.
India and Pakistan will finally play each other on September 2 in Kandy, Sri Lanka. In the other group stage match on September 4, India will play Nepal.
The matches will start 3pm IST on all days.
Pakistan will host three matches from the group stage and one from the Super Four stage. Sri Lanka is where the rest of the games will be held. The final will be held on September 17 in Colombo.
In 2023, there will be two groups, and the top two teams in each group will move on to the Super Four stage. All four teams will play each other once in the Super Four event. The final will be between the top two teams from the Super Four stage.
There is a chance that India and Pakistan will play each other three times in the Asia Cup if things go that way. India and Pakistan will have to make it to the Super 4 stage before that can happen. Then, if they win that stage, they will meet each other again in the final.
India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Nepal will take part in the continental event.
