COLOMBO: Sri Lanka have been given time until July 27 to confirm whether they would be able to host Asia Cup 2022 in the island nation amid the economic crisis that has led to widespread protests across the country. Sri Lanka have the hosting rights for Asia Cup 2022, which is scheduled to be played from August 27.
Sri Lanka is battling rising inflation and a severe shortage of essential commodities and fuel due to decreasing foreign currency reserves. Protests have erupted against the government with several former cricketers, including Arjuna Ranatunga and Sanathan Jayasuirya joining the public rallies in the country.
A source close to the Asin Cricket Council said that the ACC officials are in constant touch with Sri Lanka Cricket board members, who are still hopeful of hosting the Asia Cup.
