India Asia Cup Match List 2023
In the group stage, Rahul Dravid’s troops will face Pakistan and Nepal. And if they manage to finish in the top 2 of the group stage table then they will head to the ‘Super 4’ stage. In this stage, four teams will play 3 games each.
Meanwhile, Fans are wondering if the Indian cricket team will go to Pakistan for a match. There’s a game scheduled to play in Lahore as part of the Super 4 matches. Specifically, A1 team will face B2 team in the Lahore game. However, here the term “A1 team” doesn’t mean the one expected to top Group A. It actually refers to Pakistan, as named by the Asian Cricket Council. In Group A, Pakistan is labeled A1, India as A2. Nepal could take A1 or A2 if they qualify for the Super 4 stage.
So, India will play Asia Cup 2023 only in Sri Lanka and we are aware of India matches’ dates. Throughout the tournament India will play two games in Pallekele and they could play a maximum of 4 games in Colombo. The timing of all of India’s matches is 3:00 PM.
