The 2018 Asia Cup was nothing less than a thriller. Bangladesh stunned India with their performance but eventually the Indians got over the line in the last ball. Bangladesh started off on a bright note by not losing a wicket till well over a hundred runs. Opener Liton Das made a spectacular 121 from 117 balls, but the middle order went low on their runs and the team could secure only 222 on board.
The Indian team started on a decent note but the partnerships could not sustain long. 223/7 is what India scored by winning the match and the series in the last ball. Kedar Jadhav and Kuldeep Yadav were present at the crease during the final run.
All said and done, Bangladesh and Afghanistan managed to play their hearts out and they are the teams which have clearly shown improvement. It was indeed a disappointing series for the Pakistan team. India’s win marks their seventh take on the Asia Cup as winners. Congratulations India!
