ASIA CUP, the most awaiting tournament for the Asian teams as well as Asian fans is going to start on 15th September 2018 at UAE. This tournament has always been a big opportunity for the underdog teams like Oman, Afghanistan, Nepal, Malaysia, Singapore, Honk Kong to get a great a exposure to play against the top ranked teams of Asia if they get through the qualifiers.
But this year with their electrifying performances they were able to rank in the Top 10 ICC Men’s ODI Ranking as a result of which they automatically qualified for the ASIA CUP skipping the qualifiers.
INDIA, PAKISTAN, SRI LANKA, BANGLADESH and AFGHANISTAN have confirmed their position in the Top 5 and are waiting for the qualifier team to join them as the tournament resumes.
And the most entertaining part of this tournament is the rivalry of India and Pakistan. As a bilateral series between these two teams has been a constant headache for both the cricketing councils, one of the only tournaments where they get to face off each other is ASIA CUP.
