Asia Cup 2022 : Super 4 matches are now going on in Asia Cup 2022. Team India has played two of its matches and in both it has to face defeat. Now the Indian team has to face Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Team India’s hopes of going to the final have ended in a way. That is, the champion team of the last two years will now have to return home without a trophy. However, even before the start of the Asia Cup, such expectations were being raised that the final match could be between India and Pakistan, which is now over.
The first Asia Cup was played in the year 1984, Team India became the champion
The Asia Cup was first organized in the year 1984. Then three teams played in it. India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka were part of it. That year’s final match was between India and Sri Lanka and the Indian team defeated Sri Lanka to capture the first Asia Cup trophy. Asia Cup happened again in 1986 and this time it was won by Sri Lanka. After this, in 1988, 1991 and 1995, Team India won the final and completed the hat-trick of the title. The Indian team defeated Sri Lanka in the final all three times, apart from Pakistan’s victory in 1986, the Pakistani team could not make it to the final. This was the period when three or four teams played the Asia Cup after Bangladesh’s entry. But since the first Asia Cup, till now the final match between India and Pakistan has not been played even once.

Now there will be no clash between India and Pakistan
This time when the schedule of Asia Cup 2022 was announced, it was almost certain that two matches would be played between India and Pakistan. One match in the league stage and the other in Super 4. The reason for this was that Hong Kong was included in the group of India and Pakistan, it was clear that both the teams would qualify for the Super 4 and would face each other again. Meanwhile, the possibility was also being raised that there could be a final between India and Pakistan, because both the teams looked very strong and the rest of the teams were weak. But when the Asia Cup started and progressed, apart from India and Pakistan, other teams also showed their strength and now the Indian team is on the verge of being out of the tournament, but it is clear that there will be no competition between India and Pakistan. Now it looks like a final between Pakistan and Sri Lanka could be on the cards, although for now, we have to wait for a few days to say anything for sure.
