Asian Games

Cricket fans may expect a great show at the Asian Games in 2023. Both a men’s and a women’s T20 cricket competition will be held during the event, which is taking place in Hangzhou, China. The stage is set for some exciting cricket action with top-seeded nations like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh moving on directly to the quarterfinals.

In 2010 and 2014, cricket was included at the Asian Games, but not in 2018. The sport is returning after a five-year absence, which heightens the enthusiasm and expectation.

Men’s Cricket Championship

The men’s T20 cricket competition will begin on September 27 and end on October 7 with the bronze and gold medal games. There will be 15 teams competing in the competition, including top-seeded nations that will start their adventure in the quarterfinals. The final 11 teams will participate in the group stage, and the top four teams and the champions will advance to the quarterfinals.

The 2023 Asian Games men’s T20 cricket competition is set up with both group rounds and straight admissions into the quarterfinals. For the first phase, teams were divided into four groups.

Afghanistan and Mongolia are in Group A, Cambodia, Japan, and Nepal are in Group B, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand are in Group C, and Malaysia, Bahrain, and the Maldives are in Group D.

The top-seeded teams—India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh—have been given straight access into the quarterfinals, skipping the group rounds, which has increased the tension.

Women’s Cricket Championship

The women’s T20 cricket competition will run from September 19 to September 25. Top-seeded teams have been given straight access into the quarterfinals, similar to the men’s event. The remaining teams are split into two groups, and following round-robin games and a qualifier for the quarterfinals, the top eight’s schedule will be determined.
