India is going to face off Bangladesh in final of Asia Cup at Mirpur, Bangladesh on 06th March 2016. The tournament was started between these two teams and will be ended against the same teams. India is undefeated throughout the tournament and won against Bangladesh (45 Runs), Pakistan (05 Wickets), Sri Lanka (05 Wickets) and UAE (09 Wickets) at the last. While Bangladesh won three matches out of four against UAE (51 Runs), Sri Lanka (23 Runs) and Pakistan (05 Wickets). Bangladesh merely lost against India.
India Pakistan matches are known for rivalry even before the match, but now India and Bangladesh matches are also coming in the same way while keeping bitter memories of past. Past incident is yet fresh in both countries’ mind.
It started since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 quarter-final. Bangladesh was chasing 201 against India and Tamim Iqbal played a shot towards the mid off and Kohli claimed a catch, on field umpire didn’t look so convinced and referred to the third umpire. Even after the clear view of clean catch, umpire had some doubt and gave not out decision to Tamim Iqbal. Kohli integrity was questioned in this incident.
Bangladesh Team – Bangladesh is surely going to miss their prime fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman in the Asia Cup 2016 final due to his side strain problem. Apart from this, BD team looks prominent in this Asia Cup. Their fast bowlers are taking wickets in powerplay and spinners giving them full support to strict the runs flow. Their batting is not dependant at one batsman; Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah Riyad are in fine touch and can score well against India too.
Indian Team – MS Dhoni is such captain, who doesn’t do so many changes in winning team. The chances are, India will come with the same team who played against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Bhajji, Negi and Bhuvi will make place for Ashwin, Jadeja and Ashish. Although Dhoni himself praised Bhuvi for his impressive bowling against UAE. Dhoni Said, "He is a hard-working guy". "He always works hard in the nets and also in the gym and I feel that's something that is important for the fast bowlers, to keep themselves fit and also take the break in the best possible manner. That has actually helped him increase the pace but at the same time, it has not affected his swing bowling.
Bangladesh cricketers are on cloud nine due to their recent performance and home support will give them advantage, but the other side India has won their last 9 matches out of 10 is ready to face the challenge.
Winning Mantra -
“The Team who will keep their performance high and mind cool will win the game”.
