The 2012 Asia Cup was the eleventh edition of the tournament and was held in Bangladesh.

Like the previous years, the tournament featured the four Test-playing nations from Asia: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. India entered the tournament as the defending 2010 Asia Cup champions. Pakistan won the tournament by beating Bangladesh in the final by 2 runs.[1][2][3][8]

Background[edit]

China was interested to host the Asia Cup at Guangzhou[9] but it was decided by the Asian Cricket Council that Bangladesh will host the event. It was the third time Bangladesh hosted the event after 1988 and 2000.

The event was supposed to be held between 1 and 11 March 2012, but was rescheduled to avoid conflicting with the ODI tri-series in Australia that also included Sri Lanka and India, which ended on 8 March. The tournament was played from 11 to 22 March.[10]

Venues[edit]

All the 7 matches were played at Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium, Mirpur.[11]
