Asia Cup 2023 Winners List
The 16th edition of the Asia Cup provides an opportunity to some of the sub-continent's heavyweights to send a warning to oppositions ahead of the World Cup. India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Afghanistan will be involved in a six-way battle, with the winner officially crowned the champion of Asia. Over the years, the Asia Cup has been dominated by mostly two teams: India, who are the most successful team having clinched the title 7 times, and Sri Lanka who have been crowned winners 6 times. 1992 World Cup winners Pakistan are next in line with 2 title wins – in 2000 and 2012 - but barring the three sub-continent giants, the likes of Bangladesh and Afghanistan have always returned empty-handed. Will this year be any different? Will the two underdogs slay the beasts that are India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka? These questions will be answered soon.
