Asia Cup 2018 moved from India to UAE on Pakistan's request

The Annual General Meeting of the ACC will be held in Lahore few days before the Asia Cup and the presidentship of the ACC will be taken over by Bangladesh

Along with it, the Emerging Nations' Asia Cup, which was originally scheduled to be held in April, will now be held in December and will be co-hosted by Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

The 2018 Asia Cup has been moved from India to the United Arab Emirates amid Pakistan´s refusal to play in India.

Sethi, along with PCB CEO Subhan Ahmed, also represented Pakistan in the session where it was also decided that five full members - Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan - would automatically qualify to play in the cup while Hong Kong, Malaysia, Oman, Nepal, Singapore and the UAE would play the qualifiers for the sixth slot.

Earlier, PCB had taken a stance that if India will not send their U-19 squad to play Emerging Asia Cup in Pakistan, then they will not allow their squad to participate in Asia Cup hosted by India.

"This year's Asia Cup will be held between 15-29th September at Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi", a source speaking exclusively, said.

India has suspended bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan since the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, which New Delhi blamed on militants based across the border. While it is a given for ICC tournaments, Asia Cup being an ACC tournament needed a government approval.

The Asia Cup 2018 will also see rivals India and Pakistan lock horns.

The final of the Emergent Trophy will be played in Sri Lanka and the matches involving Pakistan and India will be played at their respective home grounds.

The ACC board also proposed to have the next annual general meeting in Lahore later this year.

"Johri apprised the ACC board of the current situation".
