ACC: Asia Cup 2023

ACC: Asia Cup 2023| The Asia Cup is a men’s one-day international 50-overs and twenty-overs international (20-overs) cricket tournament. It was started in 1983 to promote goodwill among Asian countries by the Asian Cricket Council. It was initially planned to take place every two years. The Asia Cup is cricket’s sole continental championship, and the victorious team is crowned Asia’s champion. It alternates between ODI (One-day international) and T20 forms every two years.

The first Asia Cup was contested in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, in 1984, where the committee’s offices were located (until 1995). Because of strained cricketing relations with Sri Lanka, India skipped the 1986 competition. Pakistan boycotted the 1990-91 competition because to strained political relations with India, and the 1993 competition was cancelled for the same reason. The ACC (Asian Cricket Council) stated that the competition would be contested biennially beginning in 2009. The ICC has agreed that all Asia Cup games will receive official ODI status.

Following the demise of the Asian Cricket Committee in 2015, the ICC (International Cricket Council ) announced that Asia Cup matches would be contested on a rotating basis between One Day Global and Twenty20 Global organizations beginning in 2016. As a result, the 2016 event was the main event played in the T20 design and served as a preliminary competition for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20.

India leads the competition with seven titles (six ODI and one T20I). Sri Lanka has the second-best group with six members, whereas Pakistan has won two championships. Sri Lanka has participated in the most Asia Cups (15), followed by India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh who have played 14 each.
