Asia Cup 2012 Schedule

Cricket is almost like a religion in the Asian subcontinent. That is the reason why the International Cricket Council hosts The Asia Cup every two years. It proves the dominance of a team in the Eastern region of the cricketing world. The Asia Cup 2012 also ensures to be a top class international competition, featuring the likes of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the minnows Honk Kong and UAE. Just like other international cricket events, this series will also be a part of the ICC’s innovative Future Tour Programs, an initiative to spread the sport of cricket throughout the globe.

Although China was interested to host the Asia Cup 2012 in Guangzhou, the ICC entrusted the hosting rights to Bangladesh. In fact, this will be the 3rd time that Bangladesh gets to host such a coveted championship. The main event will begin in March 12, 2012 and continue up to March 22. There will be the preliminary stage, where each team will play against the opponent. The two teams which emerge with the highest points will go forward into the finals. All the teams are strong, and it will be a matter of time before the cricket fraternity finds out which team will be crowned Asian champions.

Earlier it was scheduled to be played from March 1 to March 11 but was reorganized to avoid conflicts with Commonwealth Bank Series 2012 in Australia which includes Sri Lanka and India as participates. Indians are the defending champions of Asia Cup, having beaten Sri Lanka in final of 2010 in Dambulla, Sri Lanka.
