The Asia Cup 2018 schedule features 13 matches with 6 teams divided into two groups participating in the tournament.

India, defending champions, will face arch-rivals Pakistan on 19 September. As per the tournament format the two teams will play each other at least once and it is expected that both teams will also move to the Super 4 round and play two matches at least. India has back to back games scheduled on 18th and 19th September and there are chances that the schedule might be revised to give India a rest day before their all important Pakistan encounter.

The tournament was originally scheduled to be played in India but was later moved to UAE due to the ongoing political tensions between India and Pakistan.
