Asia Cup is the only continental cricket event where the best Asian teams fight each other for supremacy. Nepal debuts with the 2023 edition and joins India and Pakistan in Group A. Another host Sri Lank gets included in Group B alongside Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Since Asia Cup is held on a rotation basis between ODI and T20 formats, the current edition will see the games in the 50-over format. Except for Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, the remaining teams have announced their squads. While Pakistan was the first team to declare its squad, Bangladesh, Nepal, and India took time to reveal their sides. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will disclose anytime soon.
