The final game of the Asia Cup in finally being played after the heavy rains fall. When the rain was pouring down earlier there was a major chance that the game might not be played and would rather end up as a whitewash.
But now all that is a talk of the past. Coming to the two teams both have played some excellent cricket in the Asia Cup so far.
India has not lost one game in the Asia Cup which shows their strength in the three departments of the game. India played some excellent cricket against the arch-rivals Pakistan in the second game of the tournament and booked them for just 83 runs in the first innings.
The inclusion of Nehra, Bumrah and Pandya has definitely strengthened the Indian bowling line up. In the spin department there is a lot of variations and hence, India has a packed bowling line up. Their batting needs no introduction.
India has some huge names in their playing eleven I any one of them fires then India will surely be right on the top. Bangladesh will have to counter the Indian batting and if they do it then they have some real chance in the finals.
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe has just hit the ball straight to the hands of Kohli and he is now trolling the Bangladeshi fans. Kohli turned is face to the crowd and had a kinky smile on his face. There were a few words spoken by the star Indian batter as well.
The match went under the dark clouds which started hovering over the ground and we saw some heavy rains as well. But once it stopped raining the ground staff did a splendid work to get the playing conditions ready.
As for the two teams, India is clearly the favorite here. Even the Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has claimed that he too feels the same like others and claims India as the favorites in this game. However Bangladesh has the pitch, crowd and home conditions as their advantages.
India remains the only undefeated team in the Asia Cup so far while Bangladesh lost just one game in the group stages and that was against India. They could have won that game as well but their fielding cost them the game.
Bangladesh has made a strong combination in the batting and bowling bit testing India especially against their batting will not be an easy task. This till be the real test for Bangladesh.
