Team India opener, Shikhar Dhawan enjoyed the success of his side in the Asia Cup 2018 by lifting the coveted trophy with his son, Zoravar. He claimed the moment to be one of the best moments of the night which saw India finally scraping through in a last-ball thriller in Dubai.
It was indeed a fantastic match which will surely be remembered for a long time. Fortunes fluctuated from one team to the other. However, in the end, it was India who prevailed on the final ball of Asia Cup 2018.
Shikhar Dhawan rejoices India victory with son Zoraver
Taking to his Instagram handle, Dhawan shared a picture with his son Zoraver and the Asia Cup Trophy.
“Holding the trophy with my son #Zoraver was one of the best moments of the night. A great series, fantastic finals and #Asiacup stays with us. #teamindia #asiacup2018 #champions,” Dhawan captioned the picture.
However, the southpaw was adjudged the Player of the Tournament for scoring 382 runs which included a couple of centuries in the process.
After batting first, Bangladesh posted a competitive score of 223 on the board. After a great start, they would have surely expected a score around the 280-mark. Openers, Liton Das and Mehidy Hasan, began quite brilliantly and shared a superb stand of 120 runs. However, the middle-order batsmen were pretty irresponsible and gave away the wickets pretty cheaply.
They kept losing wickets on a consistent basis and was eventually skittled out inside the 50th over. Liton Das scored his maiden century and ensured Bangladesh at least had a total to fight with.
Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma began pretty well for India. After a 35 runs stand it, was a terrible shot from Dhawan which brought about his downfall.
However, Rohit Sharma kept going and was nearing a half-century when Rubel Hossain dismissed him with a short delivery. India lost essential wickets towards the later stages which made things interesting. Eventually, it was Kedar Jadhav and Kuldeep Yadav who ensured India lifted the Cup in the final delivery of the match.
