The Asia Cup 2022 will have its Super Four stage starting on 3 September as four teams will compete for a place in the final on Sunday, September 11. As per the format, top two teams from Group A and Group B will meet each other in round-robin format in the Super Four stage, starting on Saturday, September 3.
While India had an easy passage to the Super Four stage after beating arch-rivals Pakistan and Hong Kong, former champions Sri Lanka had to grind their way to the Super Four after a last-gasp win over Bangladesh. Afghanistan have been the surprise package as they topped Group B ahead of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, beating them both.
With still one fixture of the group stage remaining between Pakistan and Hong Kong, one spot is yet to be decided.
