The Asia Cup 2022, which was scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka, has been moved to the UAE, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said here on Thursday.
“Asia Cup will be in UAE, as it is the only place where there won’t be rains,” Ganguly told reporters after the Board’s Apex Council meeting here.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) was informed by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Wednesday that the organisation will not be able to host the 2017 Asia Cup T20 due to the country’s ongoing political and economic turmoil.
In response to the current turmoil, the SLC recently decided to postpone the third season of the Lanka Premier League (LPL).
The Asia Cup, which will be played in the T20 format, is scheduled to take place from August 27 to September 11.
