Dubai: The Asia Cup 2022 will begin on August 27 in Dubai. Matches will be held in two venues – Dubai International Cricket Stadium and Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The cricket event was earlier scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka. It was shifted to the UAE due to the economic crisis in the island nation.
