India to play Bangladesh in Asia Cup opening fixture
This edition of the Asia Cup will be played in the Twenty20 format for the first time and the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur will host all the games including the final.
In the eventuality where two teams finish with the same points in the qualifying tournament the net run rates will be considered to determine who finishes at the top of the table.
The previous edition of the Asia Cup was played in the One-Day International format in 2014 with Sri Lanka emerging as winners by securing a five-wicket victory against Pakistan.
In the 12 previous editions of the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka and India have won five times each while Pakistan emerged champions two times.
