India successfully defended the Asia Cup title dramatically, beating Bangladesh in a last-ball in Dubai on Friday. The Indians were chasing a target of 223, after winning the toss and inviting Bangladesh to bat first.

However, India had a lot of experience but almost failed to reach that target, and it almost reached to a breaking point.

Kedar Jadhav was facing the final ball, and the scores were level then. He tried to flick it down to the fine leg boundary and failed to do so, but India got a single leg bye which was enough for them to win the Asia Cup 2018.

Moreover, after the tremendous win over Bangladesh, former India opener, Virender Sehwag took it to Twitter to congratulate them and appreciated the performance of Bangladesh players throughout the tournament. In addition to that, many cricket experts enjoyed the leadership quality of Mashrafe Mortaza.

Earlier, Bangladesh started off well to put pressure on the Indian bowlers. The opening duo of Liton Das and Mehidy Hasan added a 120-run partnership for the first wicket. Moreover, The Tigers missed their crucial player, Shakib Al Hasan who was unable to play due to his illness.

Later in the game also, Kedar Jadhav was forced to retired hurt with a hamstring injury. However, he came out again at the fall of the sixth wicket with the Indian team on 212 for six and finished the innings at unbeaten 23.

Meanwhile, Virender Sehwag said the Men in Blue had lots of areas to work on, and they are capable of rectifying mistakes. He is hoping that India will surely do that and advanced themselves for the next year’s World Cup.

“So near yet so far from Bangladesh. Congratulations to Team India on winning the . Hats off to Bangladesh for such a spirited fight despite missing key players. India have a lot of areas to work upon despite winning this & I am hopeful, they will get better.
