Asia cup all live update
Asia cup match very interesting odi series
The day has finally arrived. Ever since the Asia Cup 2018 schedule was announced, the cricketing world was waiting for just one match: India vs bangladeshe. After a long wait, the day is finally here as the two teams lock horns in the final Group B match today at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. India, who are playing two games back-to-back, are facing Pakistan only a day after they faced Hong Kong yesterday. To make things even better, today’s match might just be one of the three matches that these teams -- if they are to make it all the way -- will play in the span of the next 10 days of the Asia Cup 2018. Let’s now take a look at how the two teams will line-up before we make our Asia Cup predictions for India vs bangaladedh
India vs bangladesh Match Preview
When it comes to cricket, it doesn’t matter what time, stage or situation these two teams are playing. It’s always an electric affair. The last time India faced Pakistan was in the ICC Champions Trophy final in June 2017 — a match India would like to forget as soon as possible. After beating Pakistan comfortably in the group stages, a upbeat Indian team was beaten quite comprehensively in the final. After posting 338 on the board, India were all out for just 158 as Pakistan won the match and that tournament.
But when it comes to Asia Cup matches, India has a slight edge over its neighbours as they lead the head-to-head count. In the total 12 games played so far between the two sides, India has beaten Pakistan six times, while Pakistan has won five times, with one game abandoned due to rain. But after a gap of more than a year, the two sides are up against each other once more, this time to top group B in the Asia Cup.
Predicted playing 11 for India vs bangladesh Team News
India is without their star man Virat Kohli. The skipper is given some much-needed rest in between what is a very busy cricketing season. In place of Kohli, Rohit Sharma steps in as captain and will be leading the team against Pakistan. Playing two matches in two days is always a difficult task for any team, no matter who it goes up against. Expect India to completely change their squad from the lineup that faced Hong Kong yesterday.
