Ahead of the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup 2023 in India, Asia Cup will return with the one-day international (ODI) format. The continental tournament will be played from August 31 to September 17 in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. In 2018, Asia Cup was played in the ODI format in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the tournament was won by India comfortably, beating Bangladesh in the final.

In the continental championship, India and Sri Lanka are the most successful teams, having tasted success by lifting the coveted trophy most times. Along with winning titles, the win percentages of these teams are also high in the tournament. However, unlike these champion teams, some sides have achieved the unwanted record of losing most games in the tournament.

Here are the five teams with the most defeats (loss %) in the Asia Cup

In the 2004 Asia Cup, Asian teams such as Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) got a chance to compete with regular members such as India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. Making their debut in the Asian championship, Hong Kong ended up at the bottom of Group A, losing their matches to Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The next edition of the tournament was held in Pakistan in 2008, and this time, Hong Kong were placed in Group B along with India and Pakistan. In front of both cricketing giants, Hong Kong struggled to win and ended their journey in the group stage.  

In the 2018 Asia Cup, Hong Kong returned to the fold, and this time again, they found themselves in front of India and Pakistan. Against the Men in Green, they faced an embarrassing eight-wicket loss, but in front of the Men in Blue, they got a narrow defeat of 26 runs. So far, they are the most unsuccessful team in the Asia Cup, with six out of six losses with a loss percentage of 100%.
