ACC Women’s Asia Cup 2018

The ACC Women’s Asia Cup 2018 is all set to take place in June this year. The tournament will be a T20I cricket tournament headed by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). It has been played six times in the past, with the first four tournaments being played in the ODI format.

India have had a spectacular record when it comes to the ACC Asia Cup. They have won all the six editions of the tournament in the past.

This year, the tournament will take place in Malaysia from June 3 to June 11. The six participating countries are Malaysia, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Earlier this month, the ICC had declared full T20I status to T20 matches between all ICC member nations, starting 1st July 2018 for women’s teams and 1st January 2019 for men’s teams.


This means that the matches being played with Malaysia and Thailand during the Asia Cup in June will still not be considered T20I matches.

Format

All the matches will be played in T20 format. Each team will play every other team once, and the top two teams on the points table will compete in the final.

Squad

The Indian squad for the ACC Women’s Asia Cup 2018 has been announced by the All-India Women’s Selection Committee. The 15-member squad does not include Rumeli Dhar, who had been called up for India’s previous two T20I series.

The Indian side will be led by Harmanpreet Kaur.

Here are the complete squads of the six participating countries.
