Bangladesh is likely to replace Sri Lanka, which is experiencing its worst economic slowdown ever, to host this year’s Asia Cup.
It is worth noting that months of power outages and severe shortages of food, fuel and medicines have caused widespread suffering throughout the island nation of South Asia.
In light of the situation in Sri Lanka, the Asian Cricket Council(ACC) may soon make a decision regarding the change of venue.
Because of the heat wave in the UAE and Oman, tense relations between Pakistan and India mean that the only option to replace Sri Lanka is Bangladesh. Prior to that, the ACC announced that the 2022 Asia Cup will be begin on August 27 in Sri Lanka.
Qualifying for the tournament, which will follow the T20 format, will be played from August 20th. Earlier, the schedule for the Pakistan tour to Sri Lanka was also revised.
