DUBAI - The 14th edition of the Asia Cup cricket tournament will be played in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, scheduled to start from September 15 to 28, 2018.

The Asia's mega event was originally set to be held in India but was shifted to the UAE because of strained relations between New Delhi and Islamabad. However, the defending champion India will face Pakistan on September 19.

The Cup reverts to its traditional 50-over ODI format this year after opting in 2016 for a Twenty20 competition, which India won.

The Emirates Cricket Board expects more than 25,000 cricket fans to attend. Teams from Pakistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan will take part in the competition along with a sixth one which will be determined in the playoffs that include UAE, Hong Kong, Nepal, Singapore, Malaysia, and Oman.
