ACC asks Sri Lanka for Asia Cup 2022 hosting confirmation before due date

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has issued a deadline for Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to decide to host the Asia Cup 2022. If the board fails to respond before 27th April, it might lose its hosting rights with the event being shifted to another country.

Amidst Sri Lanka’s political and financial turmoil, it has been reported the country is unlikely to host the Asia Cup. The alternative venue, however, has not been decided but ACC wants to know if or not SLC is in the position to say yes amid the country’s current situation.

Although there is still time left in the event, but the council wants SLC to be assured of their capability to organize the event in the midst of crisis. Since there are major steps to be taken, the board must inform the council before the due date.

The issue was also discussed in the ICC meeting last week but the outcomes were not much appealing enough. Notably, the event is scheduled to kick-start on 27th August whereas, the final will be played on 11th September.

Five participants including Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are set to feature in the tournament. Whereas, one more team is to join them after a qualifying tournament which is scheduled to be held on August 20.
