The 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup was a cricket tournament held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.[3] Eight teams participated in the tournament including five under-23 age level teams of Test nations and three top associate teams from Asia(where four players above age 23 are allowed in each U23 team in the squad of 15).This Competition was organized by ACC (Asian Cricket Council).[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 co-host whilst India's matches and knockout stage will be played on Lankan soil.[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]
