What a dramatic finish this has been! A match worthy of a final. Seventh Asia Cup title for India.
Feel, the partnership between Jadeja and Bhuvi has been the most crucial phase of this run-chase. However, let’s cometh the fighting spirits of Bangladesh as well. With a depleted team they have run India close here. Feel, now it is formally proved that in the 50-over format Bangladesh are the second best Asia team.
Seventh Asia Cup title for India! And they have to sweat hard to earn it. Chasing a target is never easy in a final and it looked a bit tough when they lost Dhawan and Rayudu quite cheaply. Rohit, however, showed his form and kept on scoring from one end. Along with Dinesh Karthik, the Indian skipper stitched in a partnership but once he fell, Bangladesh sniffed a chance. Although, MS Dhoni accompanied Karthik after that and steadied the nerves with a vital 54-run stand. These two planned the chase very nicely and at that stage, India were in control of the chase.
