Pakistan boycotted the 1990–91 tournament due to strained political relations with India and the 1993 tournament was cancelled for the same reason. The ACC announced that the tournament would be held biennially from 2009 onwards. The ICC has ruled that all games played in the Asia Cup have official ODI status.
The 2023 Asia Cup will be the 16th edition of the tournament and will be played in both ODI and T20I formats. The tournament will be jointly hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The ODI matches will be played in Pakistan, while the T20I matches will be played in Sri Lanka.
