India wins Asia Cup title for a record sixth time

India wins Asia Cup title for a record sixth time

As India lifted the Asia Cup trophy without losing a single match in the tournament, skipper MS Dhoni said they were well on track for the World Twenty20, beginning in two days time.

India finish their unbeaten run in the Asia Cup with a strong performance in the final. Bangladesh fought hard in phases, but a victory with six balls to spare and eight wickets in hand is a pretty emphatic one in the end. Bumrah and Ashwin were the stars for India with the ball, before Dhawan and Kohli sealed the chase with that partnership. Dhoni had played only nine balls in the tournament.

India were dominant in their win against Bangladesh in the final, chasing 121 with eight wickets in hand and seven balls to spare. Dhoni himself finished the match with a six off Amin Hossain.

During the post-match presentation, Dhoni praised the team’s top, batting order for their performance.

“Thanks to top-order batsmen. They have done the bulk of the job, the lower order batsmen just go and do what is needed after that. It’s looking very good now, we are on track for the World T20,” Dhoni said.

Dhoni said paceman Jasprit Bumrah and young all-rounder Hardik Pandya are making the side formidable.

Jasprit, the beauty is that he can bowl yorkers, if you don’t have the yorker you have to try a lot of other deliveries, his slightly different action also helps him a bit. Hardik can bowl a few overs for us, so if he can give us four in T20s, with his batting and fielding he is a great package,” Dhoni said.

Dhoni also praised Yuvraj Singh for adjusting well to his changed batting position.

“Looking at this team it is tough to give Yuvi the no.4 slot, but he has adjusted. We have 13-14 players they are all match-winners, that is the beauty of the side, everyone is taking responsibility for finishing the game.” “Important is to get settled combination. That’s what we have.” he said.

Man-of-the-match Shikhar Dhawan, who struck 60, said it was a “special” knock for him. “It’s special. The best thing is that we won. As a team, we have worked hard.

Dhawan said, “We are peaking at the right time. We were talking while chasing runs. We were comfortable during the chase, never felt the pressure. We were under control.”
