Asian Cup 2023: Asia Cup 2023. The largest cricket tournament in Asia. When all of Asia’s major teams compete, the world watches with bated breath. Something similar is happening this time too. Every game is full of excitement. The first edition of the Asia Cup was held in 1984 when Sunil Gavaskar was the captain of the Indian team. From then until 2023, 39 years have passed and Rohit Sharma is the captain. A lot has changed in that time, but one thing hasn’t been seen in the final of this tournament. But this time something might happen that hasn’t happened yet.
Six teams took part in the 2023 Asian Cup
This time six teams are taking part in the Asian Cup. It was historic for Nepal to get a chance to play international cricket with its neighboring countries, but the team was eliminated in the first round. But the team must have learned something from India and Pakistan. Apart from Nepal, Afghanistan also got eliminated in the first round although they gave their best but the team could not advance to the Super 4. The competition then continues between India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Bangladesh’s game is almost over. Team India has registered for the finals, but now the question is who among Pakistan and Sri Lanka will make it to the finals and defeat India for the title.
The 2023 Asia Cup final could be played between India and Pakistan
In the Asia Cup there were matches between India and Pakistan every season, this time there were two matches. But the final between India and Pakistan never took place. But this time something like that seems to be happening. India reached the final by defeating Pakistan and Sri Lanka. But in the meantime, the problem was so big that Team India could have paved Pakistan’s way to the final and the same thing happened. India kept Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the final alive by defeating Sri Lanka. Now the entire responsibility lies in the hands of Pakistan. If the Pakistan team beats Sri Lanka, they will go straight to the final. However, if it loses, the final will be played between Sri Lanka and India. In addition, Sri Lanka will qualify for the final due to the better net run rate if there is rain and the game cannot be completed. Should the Pakistan team reach the final, it would be the first time in the 39-year history that India and Pakistan will face a title clash. It remains to be seen which equations will be formed further.
