Due to the current political and economic crises, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Thursday announced that it would not be hosting the Asia Cup in the island nation in 2022. The SLC has announced its choice to host the tournament to the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
The SLC informed the ACC of its decision, according to Sri Lankan media, stating that it is “not in a position” to host the Asia Cup cricket competition in the nation given the current political and economic climate of the nation.
In response to the current turmoil, the SLC recently decided to postpone the third season of the Lanka Premier League (LPL).
This year, the Asia Cup will take place in August and September to coincide with the T20 World Cup in Australia.
The choice of hosting the tournament in the United Arab Emirates has not yet been made. However, the location might be any Asian nation, including India.
