2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup

The 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup was 3rd edition a cricket tournament held in Karachi, Pakistan and Colombo, Sri Lanka.[3] Eight teams participated in the tournament including five under-23 age level teams of Test nations and top three teams from 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier. This tournament was organized by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).[4] Initially, Pakistan was sole host for the tournament but India and BCCI refused to send Indian players to Pakistan.[5] Following the increasing political tensions between India and Pakistan, ACC announced that Sri Lanka would be the co-host whilst India's matches and knockout stage will be played there.[6][7] The U-23 teams from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan qualified for the semi-finals. Sri Lanka's U-23 defeated India U-23 by 3 runs in the final to win the tournament.[8]
