Women’s Asia Cup 2022: Host, Today’s match
In the ICC Men’s Asia Cup 2022, the Indian cricket team disappointed the cricket fans and the team was eliminated from the tournament after losing two big matches of Super-4 to Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Now, this mega tournament has returned again, but this time it is the Women’s Asia Cup 2022.
Cricket fans’ hopes are once again with Team India. In the recently held India-England ODI series in England, the team that won the series 3-0 is bound to be hoping for a win.
The Women’s Asia Cup was started in the year 2012 in the T20 format. Its last edition was played in 2018. The fourth edition of the Women’s Asia Cup was scheduled to be held in Bangladesh in 2020, but it was postponed to 2021 due to Covid-19. After this, the fourth edition was postponed.
Now in 2022, the fourth edition of the T20 format of the Women’s Asia Cup is scheduled to be played in Bangladesh. If the 50-over format matches in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008 are also added, it will be the eighth edition of the Asia Cup.
