India’s Dominance | Is India the hot pick in 2023 Asia Cup Betting?

asia cup betting

India has dominated the tournament since its launch in 1984. The two-time World Champions won four of the first five editions of the Asia Cup. Sunil Gavaskar led India to the title in the inaugural edition. India overcame Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the league stage to become the first-ever Asia Cup Champions.

Check the summary of 1984 Asia Cup Results:

  1. Match One: Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by five wickets
  2. Match Two: India beat Sri Lanka by 10 wickets
  3. Match Three: India beat Pakistan by 54 runs

After this historical moment, in the next edition, India didn’t manage to qualify for the finals. India had pulled out of the tournament due to political reasons. Sri Lanka won its first major title two years later by defeating Pakistan in the 1986 Asia Cup final. However, the Indian team bounced back with a hat-trick of Asia Cup titles.

Dilip Vengsarkar led India to glory in 1988. Meanwhile, in 1990 and 1995, India lifted the title under the captaincy of Mohammad Azharuddin. Sri Lanka finished runner-up when India won three successive titles between 1988 and 1995.

The breakdown in the relationship between India and Pakistan forced ACC to cancel the 1993 Asia Cup. Like India’s absence in 1986, Pakistan pulled out from the 1992 Asia Cup held in India.

Now, India stands as one of the favourites to lift the trophy. Many gamblers are eyeing to place their bet on Asia cup, backing India.

Sri Lanka’s Emergence

asia cup betting

Since its triumph in the 1996 World Cup, Sri Lanka emerged as one of the powerhouses in international cricket. In the 1997 Asia Cup, the Island nation emerged champions after a crushing eight-wicket victory over India in the final in Colombo. Arjuna Ranatunga guided Sri Lanka to the title with an unbeaten 62. Also, Marvan Atapattu and Sanath Jayasuriya played stellar knocks with the bat in the final.

The Asia Cup 2000 remains a special tournament for Pakistan, as the team led by wicket-keeper Moin Khan defeated Sri Lanka by 39 runs to win their maiden Asia Cup trophy. Yousuf Youhana and Adul Razzaq were the architects in the title win.

Sri Lanka went on to clinch back-to-back titles in 2004 and 2008. The 1996 World Cup winners defeated India on both occasions. Ajantha Mendis clinched a career-best 6/13 in the 2008 Asia Cup final, which saw Lankans clinch a crushing 100-run win in Karachi.

Sri Lanka is the second favourite for those who bet on Asia Cup cricket.

Most Interesting Season in Asia Cup History

The 2008 Asia Cup remains one of the most interesting tournaments in Asia Cup history.

  3. Suresh Raina, Virender Sehwag, and MS Dhoni scored more than 1000 runs between them.

India and Sri Lanka have established their strengths and both of them won 4 trophies each at the end of 2008 season.

Road to 2023 Asia Cup

  • India tasted back-to-back success in the 2016 and 2018 editions. On both occasions, India beat Bangladesh. The 2016 edition was the first tournament played in the T20 format. In a one-sided final, India cruised to an eight-wicket win.
  • Rohit Sharma-led India clinched a record seventh Asia Cup in 2018. Shikhar Dhawan was the player of the tournament with 342 runs, while Rashid Khan, Mustafizur Rahman, and Kuldeep Yadav picked up ten wickets each. India overcame Bangladesh by three wickets in the title clash.

In the 2022 edition of the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka, after losing the opening match, made a stunning comeback to win the title. Bhanuka Rajapaksa hit a brilliant 71 to set up a challenging total of 170 against Pakistan in the final.

Asia Cup Top 5 Wicket-takers (ODIs)

Like the most runs chart, Sri Lankans occupy the top spots in most wickets charts in Asia Cup ODIs. Muttiah Muralitharan is the leading wicket-taker, while second-placed Lasith Malinga has 29. Mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis is third in the table. Saeed Ajmal, Irfan Pathan, and Abdur Razzak have taken the most wickets for Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, respectively.

Also, Kohli and Hong Kong’s Babar Hayat are the only two players to score a hundred in the tournament.

With 13 wickets, Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the wicket-takers list in Asia Cup T20s. UAE’s Amjad Javed and Bangladesh medium-pacer Al-Amin Hossain are second and third, respectively. Bhuvneshwar is the only pacer to have registered a five-wicket haul in the shortest format of the Asia Cup.

The six-team Asia Cup will be held from August 31 to September 2023 in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. As mentioned above, Sri Lanka is the defending champion, while Nepal will debut in the Asia Cup. A total of 13 matches, including the fixtures in the Super Four and Final, will be played in Asia Cup 2023.

Note: The official announcement of the Asia Cup schedule is yet to be released.

Asia Cup 2023 Format

With the Asia Cup 2022 played in T20 format, the 2023 Asia Cup follows a 50-over format. The six teams are divided into two groups, with the group winner and runner-up progressing to Super Four.

In the second stage, the four teams will play against each other. Teams finishing first and second in Super Four will meet each other in the final.

  • Group A – India, Pakistan, Nepal
  • Group B – Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan

Nepal qualified for Asia Cup after clinching the ACC Men’s Premier Cup, the so-called Asia Cup 2023 Qualifiers. Ten teams – Bahrain, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nepal, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and UAE – participated in the two-week-long event. Nepal overcame UAE to win the Asia Cup 2023 Qualifiers and seal a berth in the Asia Cup 2023.

Asia Cup 2023 Teams List

With the World Cup around the corner, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan will want their players to step up. Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam will be eyeing their first major trophy as captain.

asia cup betting
  • Under Rohit Sharma, India is yet to win a major trophy. They reached the 2022 T20 World Cup semi-finals and lost to Australia in the 2023 World Test Championship final.
  • Like Rohit, Babar will want to prove his detractors wrong. Pakistan came close to winning two trophies last year but fell in the final hurdle in the 2022 T20 World Cup and Asia Cup 2022.
  • After sealing their place in the World Cup, Sri Lanka will be high, remaining unbeaten in the Qualifiers. Coming with the tag of defending champions, the Lankans will surely be eyeing consistency.
  • Will the real Bangladesh stand up? After an excellent 2019 World Cup campaign, Bangladesh has had mixed results in the last four years. An ODI series defeat against Afghanistan at home recently was a new low.
  • Afghanistan will hope to find well-needed momentum ahead of the World Cup. Afghanistan could reach the Super Four in a second successive Asia Cup thanks to the quality batting unit and a bowling unit led by Rashid Khan.
  • Nepal finds itself in a tough group. However, a good outing in the World Cup qualifiers, where they finished above UAE and USA, is a major boost for the debutant. Nepal will be keen to leave a huge impression in its maiden major cricketing event.

The Asia Cup 2023 team list is yet to be announced by respective cricket boards. Once confirmed, squad details of all teams will be listed.

Asia Cup 2023 Schedule | Must Awaited India vs Pakistan Match

The complete schedule will be updated once it is announced. However, it can’t stop us from anticipating this must-awaited encounter: India vs Pakistan. The clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan is the most exciting in the Asia Cup.

Recap of the Previous Encounter between India and Pakistan

The last time both sides met, Virat Kohli’s heroics sealed a final-ball win in the 2022 T20 World Cup group stage fixture. It was a situation of a see-saw, but India came out glorious. The six from Kohli in the final over is still a moment to celebrate for all Indian fans.

India vs Pakistan Asia Cup Possibilities

The two teams could meet as many as three times in the upcoming Asia Cup. The fans of both teams and neutrals will look forward to another classic encounter. We can expect three matches between these two sides.

  1. In Group Stage
  2. In Super Four
  3. In Final

Other Potential Teams

Sri Lanka will look to defend their crown after a sensational title win last year. Three-time Sri Lanka will look to defend their crown after a stunning title win last year. Three-time winners Bangladesh will look to bounce back after failing to go past the group stage the last time. After an ODI series win in Bangladesh, Afghanistan will look to sustain the momentum. On the other hand, Nepal, paired against India and Pakistan, will want to give a good account of themselves and earn valuable experience.

With uncertainty over venues, the Asia Cup 2023 schedule is yet to be announced. Pakistan is likely to host four matches, while nine matches, including India’s fixtures, are set to be held in Sri Lanka. The schedule will be updated as and when the official announcement is made by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).

Asia Cup 2023 Venues

Iconic cricketing venues in Pakistan and Sri Lanka will witness some riveting cricket action from August 31. Cricket fans in Karachi and Colombo will be eagerly awaiting the Asia Cup 2023 cricket fixtures venues announcement.

As the Indian government is unlikely to issue travel permits to Pakistan, Rohit Sharma’s men are likely to play their games in Sri Lanka. On the other hand, apart from their fixtures against India, Pakistan is expected to play the group stage match against Nepal and a few Super Four Fixtures at home.

The venues will be listed as and when ACC announces the tournament schedule.
