Cricket Asia Cup 2023 Prize Money
The Asian Cricket Council ACC has increased the prize money of the Cricket Asia Cup almost three times to increase the attraction. The winner of the Asia Cup 2023 will get prize money of $200000 US dollars.
Along with the champion prize, the runner-up prize money also increased in the last tournament, where the champion’s prize money was 60 thousand US dollars. In the last Asia Cup in 2018, the runner-up, Bangladesh, received 30 thousand US dollars; this time, the runner-up team will get 1 lakh US dollars.
The Asia Cup will start on August 27. It will end on September 11. Pakistan will host this year’s Asia Cup, but due to political issues between Pakistan and India Asia Cup is likely to be shifted to a neutral venue. If Asia Cup 2023 is moved from the hosting country, Pakistan will boycott to play the Asia Cup at a neutral venue.
On the other hand, India plans to host five national tournaments to practice for the upcoming ODI World Cup if the tournament is canceled. Pakistan has the same verdict for India if they are not coming to Pakistan for Asia Cup, Pakistan will not travel to India for the Cricket World Cup 2023.
Sri Lanka won the last edition of the Asia Cup, whereas Pakistan was the runner-up team. However, in this year’s Asia Cup, Sri Lanka is a different favorite than before. Because Cricket World Cup is ahead, Asia Cup will be in ODI format.
This year’s Cricket Asia Cup will be played in the ODI format as the team will get practice for the upcoming ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. Pakistan is among the hot favorite team to win this year’s tournament.
