Asia Cup 2022 Schedule: Three India vs Pakistan games possible if both qualify for the finals

Asia Cup 2022 was supposed to be held in Sri Lanka. However, the event has been relocated to the UAE because of the ongoing economic crisis in Sri Lanka. Preparations have started for the event and the Asia Cup 2022 schedule has also been announced. The first game of the competition will be on 27th August.

Asia Cup 2022 Schedule

Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will take part in the first game of Asia Cup 2022 on the 27th of August. The game will be held in Dubai. The next day, India and Pakistan will take on in the same venue. Apart from this game, India will also face the winner of the qualifier round.

The top two teams from each group will qualify for the Super 4 Round. In this round, each of the teams will play against each other. The top 2 teams after this stage will qualify for the finals, which will be played in Dubai on September 11th.


India and Pakistan could clash five times this year

Barring the ICC events and the Asia Cup, India, and Pakistan never clash right now. However, the teams could take on each other five times this year.

In the Asia Cup, India and Pakistan will play in the group stage. It is likely that they will qualify for the Super 4 round. Here, they will play once more. If they reach the finals, there is the possibility of one more game happening. Hence, there are three possible games in the Asia Cup.


Speaking about the T20 World Cup later this year in Australia, one game is confirmed. If the teams reach the finals, there will be one more encounter in the summit clash. This is good news for the fans, who have been starved of high-profile encounters.

From the Indian context, the challenge against Pakistan will be useful. In the 2021 T20 World Cup, they lost their first game. Hence, they would want to make amends in the coming weeks. Asia Cup 2022 will also give the Indians a good chance to practice against high-quality opposition. Therefore, the upcoming few months will be important for Team India.
