The competition’s inaugural edition was contested in the 50-over format in 1984, while the event was played in the T20 format for the first time in 2016.

The Asia Cup 2023 is being hosted this year by two countries Pakistan and Sri Lanka in a hybrid model. 9 matches will be held in Sri Lanka while Pakistan will host 4 matches.

This event will commence on 30th August and will conclude on 17th September.

The competition has six teams split into two groups. The top two teams from each group advance to the Super 4s, where each team plays the other team once. The top two teams will then compete in the final game. The six teams of Asia Cup 2023 are India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Nepal will play its maiden Asia Cup.

Winning Prediction Of Team India

By the results of India’s ODI matches from late 2022 to 2023, India has lost series to Bangladesh outside of home but has whitewashed Sri Lanka and New Zealand at home. On the other side, India has recently lost an ODI series at home against Australia.

Ultimately, the Asia Cup will feature exclusively Asian countries. So India may do well at the Asia Cup 2023, and perhaps Rohit Sharma and his squad will bring home the championship after a gap of 5 years.
