The Asia Cup 2023 kicked off on Wednesday, August 30, with the tournament opener being played between Pakistan and Nepal at the Multan Cricket Stadium.
While there was a lot of buzz and excitement surrounding Asia Cup 2023, which is being co-hosted by Sri Lanka and Pakistan, a very shocking image emerged from the Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, depicting the entire stadium as empty.
