KARACHI: Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly claimed on Thursday that the Asia Cup 2022, which was initially planned to take place in Sri Lanka, will now be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"Asia Cup will be in UAE, as it is the only place where there won't be rains," Ganguly told reporters after the Board's Apex Council meeting in Mumbai.

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) was informed by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Wednesday that the Island nation will not be able to host the Asia Cup due to the country's ongoing political and economic turmoil.

In response to the crisis, the SLC recently decided to postpone the third season of the Lanka Premier League (LPL).

The Asia Cup, which will be played in the T20 format, is scheduled to take place from August 27 to September 11.
