The Sri Lanka Cricket Board has announced that it would not be hosting the Asia Cup 2022 later this month. It has excused itself owing to the economic woes in the country.
The Island nation is already struggling with its energy reserves. With its economy in tatters, the nation’s cricket board has decided that it would be better off without hosting the Asia Cup 2022.
The Asia Cup was played the last time in the United Arab Emirates in 2018. India are currently the reigning champions of the Asia Cup. According to some media reports, UAE is a strong contender to host the Cup this year as well.
The Asia Cup 2022 is scheduled to be played between August 27 – September 11, 2022.
