Bangladesh are among the six sides that will feature in the Asia Cup 2022 T20 tournament. The event will be held in the UAE from August 27 to September 11. The competition was initially supposed to take place in Sri Lanka. However, the venue had to be changed due to the ongoing economic crisis in the island nation.
Apart from Bangladesh, the Asia Cup will also feature India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan and a qualifier. The teams have been divided into two groups (A and B). Bangladesh have been placed in Group B alongside Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. Arch-rivals India and Pakistan are in Group A. They will be joined by a qualifier.
After the end of the group games, there will be a Super Four round. In this, all four teams who have qualified will compete against each other. The final of Asia Cup 2022 will be played in Dubai on September 11.
