The teams are divided into two groups. In group A, Afghanistan is paired with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and in group B, the defending champions India is paired with Pakistan and winner of the qualifiers.

India will play their opening match against the qualifier on September 18 before a much-awaiting clash against Arch-rivals Pakistan on very next day.

One team that will finish at the bottom of each group will be eliminated while rest of the teams will be playing against each other in the Super 4 stage. The two teams that finish at the top two in Super 4 stage will play in the final on September 28 in Dubai.
