Asian Games 2023: Complete Cricket schedule, dates, times; how to watch, live-streaming details | Mint – Mint

The Asian Games 2023 is set to be a grand spectacle for cricket enthusiasts. The event, taking place in Hangzhou, China, will feature both men’s and women’s T20 cricket tournaments. With top-seeded teams like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh entering directly into the quarter-finals, the stage is set for some thrilling cricket action.
Cricket was part of the Asian Games in 2010 and 2014 but was absent in 2018. The sport is making a comeback after a five-year hiatus, adding to the excitement and anticipation.

Men’s Cricket Tournament

The men’s T20 cricket tournament will kick off on September 27 and conclude with the bronze and gold medal matches on October 7. The tournament will feature 15 teams, including top-seeded nations that will begin their journey from the quarter-finals. The remaining 11 teams will compete in the group stage, and the winners will join the top four in the quarter-finals.
The men’s T20 cricket tournament at the Asian Games 2023 is structured to include both group stages and direct entries to the quarter-finals. Teams have been categorised into four groups for the initial phase.
