The schedule of Asia Cup 2018 has been declared, and we have our two groups. Group A will have India, Pakistan, and the team winning qualifier’s round, whereas group B consists of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan. The arch-rivals India and Pakistan have been included in the same group so we can expect an intense and spectacular game from the early stages of the tournament. The group match between India and Pakistan is on September 19th and will be held at Dubai. The final of the Asia Cup is on September 28th in Dubai and we can surely expect lots of action in the next month.
