The Asia Cup 2018 will make its grand arrival in UAE next month, with top batsmen and brilliant bowlers likely to descend on the UAE. Tickets for the big two week tournament are on sale now.
Dubai will host eight major games, including the first and final, as six nations would compete against each other to lift the cup.
The Group A, comprising defending champions India, will face Pakistan, and another yet to be decided qualifier, while the Group B will see Sri Lanka play against Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
The games would be played over a 50 over format from 3.30pm.
