The Final will be played on September 7.

“Adjustments in the dates are made following a request received by the SL Board from a couple of participating teams, including Pakistan, on the possible clash of international fixtures. Pakistan are to host England for seven T20 Internationals in the latter part of September. If Asia Cup goes ahead on the new dates of August 24 and ends on September 7, it would be perfect from Pakistan’s perspective as the team will be back home well in time for the start of the T20 series against England,” reports said.

The last edition of the tournament was won by India.

The next edition will be hosted by Pakistan in 2023, which was originally scheduled in 2022.
