General News Asia Cup 2018 set to be played in UAE
Advertisement
#1
The upcoming Asia Cup, which was set to be played in India, has been moved to the United Arab Emirates due to the former's reluctance to host Pakistan at home owing to the political tension between the two nations.

"The ACC deliberated on the matter and decided that this was the best way forward," Najam Sethi, Asian Cricket Council and PCB chairman, told ESPNcricinfo.

The 2018 edition of the Asia Cup will be a six-team affair with the five member nations - India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan - along with a sixth country among UAE, Hong Kong, Nepal and Oman, which will be decided via a playoff.

The 14th edition of the tournament is expected to be played from September 13 to 28. The decision came following protest from Pakistan that if India refuses to send its players to the country for the ACC Emerging Teams' Asia Cup, it won't send its players to India for Asia Cup.

The Emerging Teams' Asia Cup will now be co-hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The tournament has, however, been shifted from April to December.
