The fixtures of the 2022 Asia Cup, which will be played in the T20 format as preparation for the 2022 T20 World Cup in October, have been announced. Rejoice you, fantasy cricket lovers.
 

The tournament begins with Sri Lanka taking on Afghanistan on 27th August in Dubai. The much-awaited India vs. Pakistan clash will be on 28th August in Dubai. This will be the first time since the 2021 T20 World Cup that India and Pakistan face each other. 
 

Team India are the defending champions of the Asia Cup, which was last played in 2018 in an ODI format. India won the title by beating Bangladesh in a last-ball thriller in Dubai. This edition of the Asia Cup was moved to the UAE from Sri Lanka because of the ongoing economic crisis in the island nation.
