CRICKET- Asia Cup, a biennial event, has been moved to United Arab Emirates (UAE) from its previous determined location, India.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) objected to India hosting the event and called for a neutral venue.
“This year’s Asia Cup is moved out of India to UAE and will be held from September 13-28,” Sultan Rana, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) development and event manager, told AFP.
Six teams will compete in the 50-over Asia Cup event.
“India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan are the five top teams while, there will be a qualifying round to select the sixth team,” said Rana, a former Pakistan first class player.
