Indian team is all set to create the history today in the Asia Cup 2018 final match played against the Bangladesh team. Although, Indian team is in the best form right now and is a major threat for the opponents they are not over-confident for the victory and said that it will not be an easy prospect to play against Bangladesh today.
The well-deserved captain of Indian team, Rohit Sharma is going well in the ongoing Asia Cup match till now. With the highest average score of 134 runs in the tournament, he will definitely prove to be hard opponents to bowled down within a few balls. Till date in the Asia cup 2018, Rohit Sharma has scored two centuries with 22 fours and 10 sixes so far.
While we have key players like Rohit Sharma, Bangladesh too have players like Mustafizur Rahman who is an asset and helps his team to knock out Pakistan out of the tournament. By giving a commendable score of 4/43 in just 10 overs, the 23-year-old Rahman has emerged as one of the finest fast bowlers in the tournament. The Indian team will have to keep an eye on him to take on Asia Cup 2018 trophy to home.
If Bangladesh has bowlers like Rahman, we have the fast bowler like Jasprit Bumrah whose bowl Yorkers will give tough times to Bangladesh. So far, in the ongoing Asia Cup tournament matches, Bumrah is placed at the third highest wicket-taker with 7 wickets in 3 matches. Though he has rested for the match against Afghanistan, he will bounce back with the same potential for the Bangla Tigers.
The second highest run scorer in the tournament and former captain of the Bangladesh team, Mushfiqur Rahim will be a pillar against the team India in today’s match. He has scored 297 runs in the Asia Cup tournament in 4 matches with 23 fours and 5 sixes.
Rahim has to face highest run scorer of the Asia Cup 2018, Shikhar Dhawan who has the strike rate of 102 and average runs of 82. So far, he has hit 41 fours and 6 sixes in the tournament. Thus, he can snatch away the momentum away from opponents any time.
