Road to ICC ODI World Cup begins with Asia Cup from today

Nepal :

Pakistan (PAK) will face neighbour Nepal (NEP) today in the opening game of the Asia Cup 2023 at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan

Asia Cup, that starts in Multan today with Pakistan taking on Nepal, is probably the last stop for five of the six nations that will also be part of the World Cup to firm up their final 15, if not the playing XI, for the quadrennial showpiece.
While Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have played a bit of ODI cricket of late, it is India who are slightly undercooked when it comes to the 50-over format.

Importantly, India have to test a few of their immensely crucial slots in a tournament where they may end up playing arch-rivals Pakistan thrice in a space of two weeks.
