  • India vs Pakistan 

After the BCCI refused to send its team to Pakistan, the ACC scheduled all the India matches in Sri Lanka. It also means India will take on Pakistan in Pallekele, Kandy, in Sri Lanka. The match is set to be played on September 2.

  • Three India vs Pakistan Matches In The Offing?

The arch-rivals can go head-to-head as many as three times. They will take each other on September 2 in Pallekele. If Nepal doesn’t stage an upset, then on September 10, India will take on Pakistan again in Colombo.

And, there is a possibility that both the teams reach the final, where again we can see an India vs Pakistan final in Colombo. If it happens, it will be the first time in the competition that India and Pakistan square off in the final. 

Asia Cup 2023 Format

In the 2023 edition, six teams are divided into two groups of three teams each. In the group stages, every team will play the other once. Depending on the outcomes, two teams will progress to the next round, which is the Super Fours. In the second round of the Asia Cup 2023 schedule, each team will take on each other, and the top two will play in the finals on September 17 in Colombo.

Concluding Thoughts

This season’s Asia Cup is going to be very exciting. The schedule has confirmed that the 16th edition of the Asia Cup is a hybrid model where the tournament will take place simultaneously in both nations for the first time.
