    Default Asia Cup to go ahead in Dhaka, Afghanistan added

    COLOMBO: Asia’s cricket chiefs on Saturday said violence-plagued Bangladesh would remain the venue for next month’s Asia Cup and added Afghanistan as the fifth team in the regional one-day tournament.
    Some observers had expected officials to move the tournament out of Bangladesh following an outbreak of violent protests and strikes in the capital Dhaka ahead of elections Sunday.
    “The tournament will go ahead as scheduled in Bangladesh from February 25 to March 7,” Asian Cricket Council chief executive Ashraful Huq told AFP after an executive board meeting in Colombo.
    “Everything is in place for the tournament, no one raised any issue about safety,” Huq said, adding the Bangladesh Cricket Board had made a detailed security presentation at the meeting.
    All 11 matches in the tournament will take place in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka as planned, despite the violence that has plagued the city in the build-up to Sunday’s general elections.
    Election-related violence in Bangladesh has claimed more than 140 lives since late October, with opposition parties boycotting the polls and organising a series of blockades across the country.
    Afghanistan will join Asia’s four Test nations – India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh – in the 50-over tournament, Huq added.
    The fast-improving Afghanistan team, which has qualified for their maiden appearance in the 50-over World Cup, have also made it to their third successive World Twenty20.
    “This is a big step forward for Afghanistan,” Huq said. “Their participation in the Asia Cup will encourage them for the bigger tests ahead.”
    Bangladesh is also due to host the World Twenty20 tournament from March 16 to April 6.

    Pakistan mein tu huney nahi dena
    کہاں اتنی سزائیں تھیں بھلا اس زندگانی میں
    ہزاروں گھر ہوئے روشن جو میرا دل جلا محسنؔ
