The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has changed the opening date of the 2023 Asia Cup from August 30 to August 29, with Pakistan set to play India on September 2 in Kandy. According to information obtained by ESPNcricinfo, the event will begin in Multan with hosts Pakistan taking on Nepal, with the final set for Colombo on September 17.
These games are included in the most recent draft schedule, which is likely to undergo more modifications before the ACC releases the final one. The six-nation tournament being held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka based on the hybrid concept recently accepted by the ACC has caused multiple changes of the initial draft schedule created by the PCB (the hosting board).
The lone Super Fours game scheduled for Pakistan that is part of the draft is on September 6 between A1 and B2. Pakistan and India will play one more on September 10 in Kandy if both countries make it to the Super Four round. The other Sri Lankan location slated to host three games in the Super 4s stage is Dambulla.
