2023 Asia Cup Groups Announced, India to face Pakistan

India and Pakistan will square off once more after being drawn together in the same group for the upcoming September 2023 Asia Cup.

According to an announcement made on Thursday by Jay Shah, president of the Asia Cricket Council, India and Pakistan will square off once more after being drawn together in the same group for the upcoming September 2023 Asia Cup. In the group with Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and a qualifying team, Sri Lanka, the defending champions, will be joined by India and Pakistan. As part of the World Cup’s preparations, the Asia Cup 2023 will be played in the 50-over format.

2023 Asia Cup: How many Matches will be played

With the exception of the qualifiers, 13 games will be played in total. These include six league games, six Super 4 contests, and a championship game featuring the top two teams. The ACC promised to petition the ICC to move the tournament from Pakistan, its original host country, but it is still unclear which country will actually host it.

Another fiery India and Pakistan clash

During their 20-over Asia Cup matchup last year, India and Pakistan put on back-to-back memorable performances. Prior to Babar Azam and the company pulling one back in the Super 4, India defeated Pakistan by five wickets in the league stage while chasing down 148. Hardik Pandya scored the winning runs in the last over of the match. However India lost to Sri Lanka, who later went on to win the cup by defeating Pakistan in the championship match, India ultimately failed to advance to the Super 4.

Will Pakistan host the 2023 Asia Cup? Will India travel there?

The venue and the schedule are both unclear. The BCCI are not interested in travelling to Pakistan to play because of the political tensions between the two nations, but Pakistan originally won the bid to host this year’s Asia Cup.

Ramiz Raja, the former chairman of the PCB, threatened to boycott the 50-over World Cup in response to the BCCI’s position, but with Najam Sethi taking over as the new chairman, things could now change.
