Five of these six teams get a direct entry into the competition – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka – while there will be six other teams that will be playing in a Qualifier to win that elusive sixth spot. These six sides are Hong Kong, Malaysia, Nepal, Oman, Singapore and UAE

Pakistan will join India and this qualifier in one group of the competition while Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will be three teams in the other group of the competition.

All these teams will thereby play two games in the group stage of the competition and the top two sides from each group at the end of this league stage will qualify for the second round. The second round is a Super Four stage, one that will see all four teams feature against each other once.

At the end of this round, the top two teams will qualify for the final.

India and Pakistan will be joined by a Qualifier in their group, while Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Bangladesh will be in the other group.

India enter the competition as the defending champions, in an Asia Cup tournament that was, for the first time, played in the T20 format. This particular edition will be played in the ODI format in the lead-up to the 2019 World Cup.

Of the previous 13 times the Asia Cup has been played, India have won the competition most number of times at six, while Sri Lanka are the second-most successful side with five titles under their belt.

Pakistan have won the competition twice, in 2000 and in 2012, beating Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the finals. Bangladesh have made the final twice.
