Shah, in his tweet, also asserted that the much-anticipated Asia Cup will serve as ideal preparation for the ICC T20 World Cup, set to be played later this year in Australia.
“The wait is finally over as the battle for Asian supremacy commences on 27th August with the all-important final on 11th September. The 15th edition of the Asia Cup will serve as ideal preparation ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup,” Shah wrote on Twitter.
