2018 Asia Cup to be shifted to UAE after India's refusal to host Pakistan

Mumbai April 11: The 2018 Asia Cup is set to be held in United Arab Emirates (UAE), it is reported.
The decision was taken by the Executive Board members at the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
"This year's Asia Cup will be held between 15-29th September at Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi", a source speaking exclusively, said.
The tournament was to be held in India but apparently, the decision arrived after Indian government's refusal to host the Pakistan cricket team.  
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) 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.
The ACC presidentship is shared by the Test playing nations in Asia.
The final of the Emergent Trophy will be played in Sri Lanka and the matches involving Pakistan will be played in Pakistan and matches involving Indian team will be played in India.
