ASIA CUP: Statistical Preview, Bangladesh vs India (Match 2)

Last updated:

by Bharath Seervi 

Tomorrow, India will start their Asia Cup campaign against the host nation Bangladesh. The young Indian team will be desperate to take the revenge of last Asia Cup defeat, in which Sachin Tendulkar scored his 100th hundred. It’s after a long time that India are going in a big tournament without Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Virat Kohli has been given the charge to lead India, and it will be intresting to see how this young Indian team responds under his captaincy.

Talking about Bangladesh– they would want to repeat their Asia Cup heroics, and they will look to make most of the home advantage. Shakib Al Hasan’s ban is a big blow for the home team, and they will miss his all-round abilities.

India, considering their good-run in the sub-continet will enter the game as favourites, but it would be too early to count Bangladesh out.
