India first won the Asia Cup in 1984 under the leadership of Sunil Gavaskar. Dilip Vengsarkar led India to a win in 1988. In 1991 and 1995 it was Mohammad Azharuddin. MS Dhoni won it for us in 2010 and 2016 (T20).

It was an excellent game of cricket which kept us on the edge of our seats throughout. Kudos to India to pull off a victory but credit to Bangladesh as well, for posing a tough challenge even though they had very few runs on board. Mashrafe Mortaza was spectacular with his captaincy, setting up an aggressive field placement and rarely giving India a chance. India's search for a batsman at the fourth spot will continue despite their victory. Hopefully, someone will take the responsibility before the tour of Australia.

Indiaaaaaa! India. An injured Kedar Jadhav has a golden bat after all as India wins by three wickets and their seventh Asia Cup title. What a match! Well done India, well done Bangladesh.

Live Update

After eliminating Pakistan from the 2018 Asia Cup, Bangladesh is now set to face India, who went through an undefeated streak to finalise their spot in the last match of the tournament. experts are of the opinion that India is the favourites to win the tournament. India has delivered quite a few fantastic performances courtesy of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja. Meanwhile, Bangladesh had lost two matches in a row but bounced back against Pakistan. Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza had said India were the far better side, but like we keep seeing any cricket, nothing is predictable. The Bangladesh side is slightly depleted as Shakib al Hasan is back home due to an injury, as is Tamim Iqbal. Similarly, India has lost the services of Hardik Pandya, who is also injured.
