Dhaka, Oct 29: Bangladesh has been selected to host next year’s Asia Cup in an Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting in Singapore. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president zmul Hassan confirmed on his return from the meeting on Wednesday night that the country will organise the competition for the third successive time. The BCB chief said it was an unimous decision. All the countries agreed when Pakistan proposed Bangladesh as hosts for the competition, which is likely to be held in February-March next year, reported bdnews.com on Thursday. India was ahead in the race for arranging the 13th edition of the competition. But Hassan had earlier hinted that the 2016 Asia Cup would be held in Bangladesh if India decided otherwise. Bangladesh, who had also hosted the 2012 and 2014 editions, will organise the tourment for a record fifth time ahead of Sri Lanka, who has staged it four times. IANS
