Written by N Krishnamurthy

The Asia Cup 2022 is scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka in August but the ongoing turmoil in the nation has raised questions about the conduct of the tournament. Former India captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has said the board will keep monitoring the situation of the island nation.

On being asked about the chances of India hosting the tournament, Ganguly decided not to comment on anything specific.

“I cannot comment at the moment (about the possibility of India hosting the event). We will keep monitoring (the situation in Sri Lanka). Australia is playing there. The Sri Lankan team is also doing well. I cannot comment at the moment. Let us wait for a month,” the BCCI president was quoted as saying.

Recently, Sri Lanka hosted Australia for a one-month-long bilateral series comprising 3 T20Is, as many ODIs and 2 Tests; the Warne-Murli Trophy. The series turned out to be highly competitive as it saw good cricket from both sides. Australia won the T20I series 2-1 while the ODI series was won by the hosts 3-2. The Test series was shared after the two-match series ended in a 1-1 draw.
