Asia Cup – A Sneak Peak into the History
The first Asia Cup was held in the year 1984 in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. Since then, there have been instances when teams have boycotted this tournament due to political reasons. Nonetheless, the tournament has held itself firmly and it’s always been competitive. From 2008, the Asian Cricket Council announced that the tournament will be conducted biennially. The ICC(International Cricket Council), after downsizing the ACC then expressed that the tournament will be played on a rotational basis between One Day Internationals and Twenty 20 Internationals.
India and Sri Lanka have won the ODI tournament 5 times, while Pakistan are two-time champions. India beat Bangladesh to be crowned champions of the inaugural T20 Asia Cup. The next Asia Cup will be held in the year 2020.
