In a grand event on Wednesday evening, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) proudly presented the trophy and schedule for the Asia Cup 2023. This is a special edition as Pakistan is hosting the tournament after almost 15 years. The last time it was held here, Sri Lanka won, defeating India in the final in 2008.
The Asia Cup 2023 will have a unique format because the Indian team declined to come to Pakistan. So, four matches will be played in Lahore and Multan, Pakistan, while Colombo and Kandy in Sri Lanka will host nine games. The tournament will kick off on August 30 in Multan, with the opening match between Nepal and Pakistan.
The PCB shared a video on their Twitter handle to share the excitement of the trophy unveiling event with fans. The video featured famous Pakistan cricket stars like Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, and Waqar Younis, along with officials from the PCB, revealing the beautiful trophy and celebrating the moment joyfully. Cricket enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for the Asia Cup 2023, expecting to see exciting cricket skills and sportsmanship on display.
