The 15th edition of Asia Cup 2022 is finally coming to an end with the final match scheduled for September 11, i.e., Sunday. Much like everyone, we are also disappointed on the fact that India lost 2 of its matches in Super 4 and was out of the tournament.

The holy-grail tournament for Asian countries is played in both ODI and T20 formats, bringing some highly competitive matches and nailing biting last-overs suspense. The tournament started in 1983 after the Asian Cricket Council was formed. The main goal of the tournament is to decide the champions of Asia. This year’s Asia Cup 2022 will play a major role in picking up the best squad for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 series, especially for team India.

Today, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will go against each other to win the Asia Cup 2022 trophy. The match is crucial for both teams as it will be a big booster for the winning team to enter T20 Word Cup with a trophy in its kitty. We have Babar Azam, who will be leading the Pakistan team. On the other hand, the Sri Lanka captain is Dasun Shanaka.

As you all know, India was the defending champion of the Asia Cup as it won the tournament in 2018 with its match against Sri Lanka. This time Sri Lanka hosted the tournament, though due to its internal conflicts, the matches were played in Dubai. This year we had India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong as the six teams for the tournament.

The Asia Cup 2022 digital and satellite rights are with Disney+ Hotstar and Star group channels. This means interested users can stream the match online on Disney+ Hotstar while people on TV can watch live action on channels like Star Sports 1 and more. We will get into details of the channel in a bit.
