Since the previous tournament was of the One Day International format, this tournament is going to be of the T20 format. Pakistan Cricket Board have been granted the rights to host the tournament in neutral locations. It is still unclear as to whether the matches will be played in Pakistan or in the UAE.

Reuters With Sri Lanka sealing their place in the final, Pakistan will look to join them with a victory over beleaguered hosts Bangladesh in the Asia Cup Theoretically Bangladesh, India and Afghanistan still stand a chance of qualifying for the final, with bonus points on offer.
Bangladesh will go through if they win their final two matches, with a bonus point or two in tow, including against Pakistan, and India fail to pick up a bonus point victory against Afghanistan, due to a better head-to-head record against Pakistan - the criteria to decide a tie between two teams.
If there is a three-way tie, then the finalist will be decided on nett run rate. Pakistan, of course, can knock off all those permutations and combinations by simply beating a Bangladesh side reeling from an embarrassing loss to Afghanistan last Saturday. We are not relaxed, we will do our basics right and try to win that game.
I thought that someone or the other would stand up and bail us out.
But in the end we were not good enough. It is not my or someone else's team. It is a matter of the nation.
I think it is time to replace those who cannot perform. If they don't feel bad after losing to Afghanistan or Sri Lanka, they should not play cricket. The team management and selectors will probably think about changes.
