Pakistan touch down tonight

Sports Reporter

The Pakistan cricket team will arrive tonight to take part in the Asia Cup starting from February 25.
Pakistan, who had broken the hearts of millions of Bangladeshi fans on March 22, 2012 to clinch the title of the previous edition with a two-run victory against the Tigers in the final at Mirpur, will play the opening match on February 25 against Sri Lanka at the Fatullah Cricket Stadium.
India, led by Virat Kohli after MS Dhoni was left out in the eleventh hour because of a side strain, will arrive tomorrow at 12pm while Afghanistan, the new entry in the competition, are due to land at 7.30pm.
The five teams will play a round-robin tournament before the final between the two top sides that will be held on March 8 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
