Asia Cup shifted from SL to UAE
After the Board’s Apex Council meeting Ganguly told reporters that the “Asia Cup will be in UAE, as it is the only place where there won’t be rains.”
Sri Lanka Cricket on Wednesday had informed the Asian Cricket Council that the board will not be in a position to host the upcoming edition of the Asia Cup T20 because of the economic and political crisis in the country.
The development comes after the SLC recently postponed the third edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) due to the ongoing crisis.
Asia Cup is slated to be held from Aug. 27 - Sep. 11 and will be played in the T20 format.
