Sri Lanka kick off the defence of the Asia Cup against qualifiers United Arab Emirates on Thursday.
The game takes place at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Bangladesh. The same venue will host all of the round-robin matches, as well as the final.
The major change for the 2016 tournament sees a switch to the Twenty20 format, rather than continuing to play 100-over matches.
They have also introduced a qualifying event to work out the identity of the fifth nation to compete in the round-robin stage.
