The 2012 Asia Cup, the 11th edition of this tournament, will be held in Bangladesh.
China was interested to host the Asia cup at Guangzhou but it was decided by the Asian Cricket Council that Bangladesh will host the event. It will be the third time Bangladesh will host the event. Earlier it had hosted the event in 1988 and 2000.
The event was supposed to be held between 1 March 2012 and 11 March 2012. But it is rescheduled to avoid conflicting with the ODI tri-series in Australia that also included Sri Lanka and India, which ended on March 8. Now the tournament will be played from 11 March to 22 March.
Four test playing nations from Asia, i.e., India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will battle against each other to decide the champion. India is the defending 2010 Asia Cup Champion.

Nine editions and 28 years later, the competition remains the passing afterthought it was for Gavaskar. Most casual fans will be hard-pressed to remember who the current Asian champions are. Three days before the start of this year's contests, another legendary former opening batsman, Geoffrey Boycott, has questioned whether anybody cares about the Asia Cup.
As tournaments seep into each other - Sri Lanka played four ODIs over the past week in Australia, get four days to zip to Dhaka in time for this event, three days after which their home series against England gets underway - context and interest get quickly drained. So much so that after India crashed out early of the CB Series, some commentators raised the week's extra rest for the team as an upside.
In this time of excess, no stadium has overdosed on ODIs like the Shere Bangla National Stadium, hosting 50 one-dayers in four years, more than twice any other venue. Judging from the voluminous crowds that have turned up for most of those matches, Dhaka may well be the city with the world's biggest appetite for cricket.
The Asia Cup is looking to cash in on that. Even as you head towards the arrival lounge in the city's airport a large hoarding informs you of details about the tournament. Drive around the city and you spot numerous billboards urging you to enter a contest to get free tickets to watch "four nations fighting for glory."
The unbridled enthusiasm of the city's fans and marketers is even more astonishing given the state of the national team. Their captain recently launched a stinging attack on the BCB's pet new project - the Bangladesh Premier League - their best batsman was controversially left out of the squad and only returned after the national selector stepped down, their most experienced player remains on the fringes after a decade of infuriating inconsistency, and their best fast bowler is among the most injury-prone in international cricket and is now returning to the team after nearly a year. And after the hopes raised by some of their performances in 2010, the past year has been a huge letdown.
