After politician unrest and security problems in Bangladesh there were rumors that the event might be shifted somewhere else. It was said that if the event takes place in Bangladesh Pakistan might not play as it can be a security risk.

Pakistani team will reach Bangladesh on 22nd February and they will be playing opening match of Asia cup against Sri Lanka on 25th February In Fatullah. Pakistan's security officer recently visited Bangladesh to check the security situation and he was satisfied after which Pakistan confirmed the participation.

Cricket fans are happy with the announcement of PCB because Pakistan are defending champions of Asia Cup and without their participation the event would have become really dull.
