Asia's cricket chiefs on Saturday said violence-plagued Bangladesh would remain the venue for next month's Asia Cup and added Afghanistan as the fifth team in the regional one-day tournament.

"The tournament will go ahead as scheduled in Dhaka from February 25 to March 7," Asian Cricket Council chief executive Ashraful Huq told AFP after an executive board meeting in Colombo.

Afghanistan will join India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the 50-over tournament, Huq added.
