The Asian Cricket Council announced the Asia Cup schedule, to be played in Malaysia from 3rd June to 10th June 2018. Six teams will be featured in this tournament – India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand, and hosts Malaysia. Each team will play against the other teams once and the top two teams will compete in the final.

This tournament will be the seventh edition of the ACC Women’s Asia Cup and the third edition to be played in the T20 format. Except for the host team, all the remaining teams have played before. Malaysia will take part for the first time in this tournament.

India has a strong dominance in this tournament, as they have won it six out of six times. They have never lost a single game since 2004 (across formats). This tournament will help to prepare for the Women’s T20 World Cup which will be held later this year in the Caribbean. It will be interesting to see whether India can defend the title or not.
