India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh are gearing up to enter the battlefield of the Asia Cup 2022's marquee tournament which is set to kick off from August 27.

Asia Cup 2022

The Asia Cup 2022 was earlier to be held in Sri Lanka. But in view of political and financial unrest in the Island Nation, it has been moved to UAE.

Asia Cup 2022's venue?

This will be for the second time that Asia Cup will be played in United Aram Emirates as the 2018's edition was also played there.

UAE, 2nd time in a row

UAE has always been lucky for India. India have won three Asia Cup titles out of three times they have played in UAE.

India's UAE connection

India's first stamp in UAE ?

The first Asia Cup was organised in the UAE in the year 1984 when India clinched the Asia Cup title for the first time by defeating Pakistan.

For the second time in the UAE back in the year 1995, the Asia Cup was played in India. In that edition the Men in Blue had won the Asia Cup by defeating Sri Lanka in the final.

India's second stamp

For the third time in the UAE, Team India, captained by Rohit Sharma, once again bagged the Asia Cup title in the year 2018. This time Bangladesh had to bite the dust in the final.

Hat-trick in UAE

From this perspective, whenever the Asia Cup has been held in the UAE, Team India has emerged victorious which makes them the hot favourites in the 2022's edition.

Time to repeat UAE glory

The first edition of Asia Cup was played in the year 1984. Since then, India have secured the title for the maximum number of times. In 2022, Team India would like to extend their title count to 8.
