Asia Cup will consist of 13 matches in total where Pakistan will serve 4 matches and 9 matches will be played in Sri Lanka including the final. Total of six teams will feature in this event which will be divided into two groups: Group A and Group B. The top two teams from each group will move to the Super 4. Following that, the final will include a match between the top two teams.

Pakistan and India will participate in the same group in the Asia Cup 2023 because the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) wants the arch-rivals to garner a larger audience, which will result in more revenue. They will face each other on September 2 at Kandy.
