Who will win Asia Cup 2024

Asia Cup 2023 is set to take place and it will serve as a perfect preparatory tournament for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The 16th edition of the Asia Cup will be co-hosted by Sri Lanka and Pakistan, who were the finalists of the Asia Cup 2022, which happened in UAE.

Nepal will be playing its first ever Asia Cup and it will join India and Pakistan in Group A. This year’s Asia Cup will follow the 50-over ODI format, keeping the World Cup in mind. In the last edition, the tournament followed the T20 format and Sri Lanka emerged victorious.

The Biggest Rivalry of Asia Cup 2023

Once again the arch-rivals India and Pakistan are grouped together and the much-anticipated India vs Pakistan clash will take place on 2nd September in Pallekele, Sri Lanka.

The Best Contender To Win Asia Cup 2023

After analysing the team squads and current forms, we are backing India to win this 50-over Asia Cup 2023. Sri Lanka are the current champions but even with the home advantage and good form, they are not the favourites this year.

India and Pakistan are expected to play the final of the Asia Cup 2023. Pakistan is currently the No.1 ODI team in ICC rankings after claiming the spot recently after the ODI series against Afghanistan.

Asia Cup Record

India won the last 50-over Asia Cup in 2018 which took place in UAE which was their 6th Asia Cup title in this format. Pakistan, on the other hand, have won 2 titles so far.

Who are the favourites for Asia Cup 2023?

India will go into the Asia Cup 2023 as the favourite team with 2.05 odds and Pakistan is the next in line with 3.00 at Betway.

The Indian squad will be beefed up with the return of Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Bumrah looked in confident form in the recently held T20I series against Ireland while Shreyas Iyer is also looking fit in the domestic practice matches. India is in dire need for a stronger middle-order and the inclusion of KL Rahul and Iyer can provide a solution to that problem.

In the bowling department, a strong pace attack of Shami, Siraj, Bumrah and Hardik Pandya will be supported by the experienced spinners Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel.

Asia Cup 2024 Prediction

India India

2022 Result: Super 4

Captain: Rohit Sharma

Key players: Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav

India is a strong side and they will go into this edition of Asia Cup as the favourites one more time. India could not advance to the Finals of the Asia Cup 2022 as they were defeated by Sri Lanka in a must-win match in Super 4.

India has roped in batters KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, who have recovered from injuries. KL Rahul is still having a little niggle, as reported by the selectors and he might miss a few games. Iyer, on the other hand, is fully fit and he will strengthen the middle-order. India will go with Rohit, Shubman and Kohli at the top 3 set-up and this can provide a strong start to the innings.

Power-hitter Suryakumar Yadav is also included in the squad and Tilak Varma, who displayed his talent in the West Indies, has earned his maiden ODI call up.

Coming to the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav has been picked to lead the spin attack along with all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel while the pace attack will be handled by Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur. Hardik Pandya and Jadeja would be the key all-rounders for this team.

India Squad Asia Cup 2023

Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Tilak Varma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (VC), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Prasidh Krishna, Sanju Samson (backup)

Pakistan Pakistan

2022 Result: Runner-up

Captain: Babar Azam

Key Players: Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Fakhar Zaman

Pakistan will be one of the co-hosts this year and they finished the last edition as runner-up.

Pakistan has been in terrific form in the ODI format. Since the last ICC World Cup in 2019, Pakistan has played 9 ODI series and won 7 out of them.

The squad looks stronger than ever with the inclusion of quality white-ball players like batters Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan, Iftikhar Ahmed and bowlers Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf.

For the pitches in Sri Lanka and Pakistan, the spin duo of all-rounders Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz will be an effective choice for the Pakistan team.

Pakistan Squad Asia Cup 2023

Babar Azam (C), Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Tayyab Tahir, Iftikhar Ahmed, Agha Salman, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Rizwan, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Usama Mir.

Sri Lanka Sri Lanka

2022 Result: Winner

Captain: Dasun Shanaka

Key Players: Pathum Nissanka, Dasun Shanaka, Kusal Mendis, Maheesh Theekshana

Sri Lanka are the current champions of the Asia Cup. They defeated Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 final and that season followed a T20 format. Dasun Shanaka led the Sri Lankan team to win their 6th Asia Cup title.

Things look difficult for the Sri Lankan squad this year as the injury plague has hit them hard with 4 key players out of the plans. Important all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga is among the injured players and his exclusion will be a big price to pay.

It is the bowling department which is taking the most toll as Lahiru Kumara, Madushanka and Dushmantha Chameera will be absent from the Asia Cup squad.

Coming to the announced squad, the batting line-up looks decent with Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis and skipper Dasun Shanaka will be the strength in the middle-order.

In the bowlers list, the pace attack responsibility falls on the shoulders of Pathirana, Kasun Rajitha, Binura Fernando, Pramod Madushan. In the spin options, Sri Lanka is left with Maheesh Theekshana and Dunith Wellalage.

Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Janith Perera, Kusal Mendis (vc), Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage, Matheesha Pathirana, Kasun Rajitha, Dushan Hemantha, Binura Fernando, Pramod Madushan.

Bangladesh Bangladesh

2022 Result: Group Stage

Captain: Shakib Al Hasan

Key Players: Shakib Al Hasan, Litton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman

Bangladesh had a poor outing in the last edition of the Asia Cup as they were knocked out in the group stage by Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. This year, they have been grouped with these two sides again.

Bangladesh is performing decently in the ODI format. They have won 3 out of the last 5 ODI series.

The star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been appointed as the captain of the side. He has a vast experience of 235 One-Day International matches and has been an effective batter in the middle and a versatile spin bowler. Bangladesh has a decent batting line-up with Hasan along with Litton Das, Mehidy Hasan and Najmul Shanto.

The bowling unit is where the strength of Bangladesh lies. They have a strong pace attack in the likes of Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Ebadot Hossain and Shoriful Islam. The spin attack will have Shakib and Nasum Ahmed.

Afghanistan Afghanistan

2022 Result: Super 4

Captain: Hashmatullah Shahidi

Key Players: Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Rashid Khan, Fazalhaq Farooqi

Afghanistan impressed everyone in the last edition of the Asia Cup. They defeated both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the group stage and advanced to the Super 4. They almost defeated Pakistan in the Super 4 match but lost the match by 1 wicket.

In the latest ODI series against Pakistan, Afghanistan almost pulled off a victory in the 2nd match but lost by 1 wicket. They performed well overall in the series.

All-rounder Karim Janat is back in the ODI squad after 6 years. Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be the key batter after his brilliant knock of 151 runs in the 2nd ODI against Pakistan followed by Ibrahim Zadran and Najibullah Zadran who will strengthen the batting line-up.

Afghanistan has a strong bowling attack with some of the best spinners and now an effective pace attack as well. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the leading wicket taker in the Pakistan ODI series while Noor Ahmad has been quite impressive in the IPL 2023. Rashid Khan is currently the best leg spinner in the world and has been active this year playing for various leagues and Mohammad Nabi has picked more than 150 ODI wickets in his career.

In the pace attack, they have Fazalhaq Farooqi and Gulbudin Naib who have been impressive lately. Farooqi picked 5 wickets in 3 ODIs against Pakistan.
