India also emerged champion in the last edition of the Asia Cup, played in the traditional One-Day International (ODI) format in 2018. It was India’s sixth title in the 50-over format and seventh overall, making it the most successful team at the continental championship. Sri Lanka has five titles to its name while Pakistan has two.

INDIA AT THE ASIA CUP OVER THE YEARS

While India has won a record seven titles, it also has three runnner-up finishes and has lost to Sri Lanka in the final on all three occassions. The only time India did not participate in the event was in the 1986 edition, which was won by Sri Lanka. The Men in Blue endured a 15-year title drought - its longest in the history of the tournament - between 1995 and 2010. During this period, Sri Lanka won three titles while Pakistan clinched its maiden title in 2000.
