Tickets for the upcoming 2018 Asia Cup, which features Pakistan and India, will go on sale this week, the organisers have announced. 

The UAE's Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) will host the 2018 Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Asia Cup in Dubai and Abu Dhabi from September 15 to 28.

The teams will start arriving in the UAE from September 10. The first game will see Bangladesh take on Sri Lanka in front of what is sure to be a full-house at Dubai International Stadium.

All of the teams taking part in the 2018 ACC Asia Cup can expect huge support from fans who have flown in especially for the tournament as well as residents who live in the UAE, with a party atmosphere guaranteed in the stands.
