The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and DP World jointly confirmed a new title sponsorship hours before the opening match between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. As a result, the forthcoming six-nation men’s T20 cricket competition will now be known as the DP World Asia Cup 2022.
The agreement is made as cricketers from across the continent get ready for the second Asia Cup T20, which will take place in Dubai and Sharjah from August 27 to September 11, 2022.
There are teams from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong competing in the redesigned DP World Asia Cup.
They will play a total of 13 games, all of which will be televised by Star Sports.
The final will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on September 11, 2022. The Asia Cup will take place in the UAE for the fourth time this year.
On this partnership, ACC President Jay Shah was quoted, ” We are happy to have DP World as title sponsor of the Asia Cup 2022. The Asia Cup is a prestigious event and the participation of a respected partner like DP World is welcome.”
