Team India won the 2018 Asia Cup, held in the UAE and hosted by the BCCI. Nine countries will compete in the T20 format of the Asia Cup, which was last played in 2018. While UAE, Kuwait, Singapore, and Hong Kong will compete in a qualifying round. And the victor will go to the main competition alongside India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
The nine-team tournament currently provides a significant challenge, even though Sri Lanka is hosting Pakistan and just won a series against Australia at home. With India hosting the 2021 T20 World Cup, UAE has historically served as a preferred backup location for large events.
