Bangladesh is hosting the Asia Cup cricket for the third time, just before the ICC World T20 in neighboring India, despite recent security fears which prompted Australia to cancel a tour.

The Pakistan cricket team will start its Asia Cup campaign against India in a high-voltage encounter on February 27.
