The Asia Cup 2018 gave us a major surprise with five-time winner Sri Lanka out of the tournament in the Group stage itself. Hong Kong is another team which got left out in the Group stage. We have now reached the Super 4 round of the Asia Cup and now have four teams who will battle it out to get into the next round. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are in the Super 4. Dubai International Stadium today, will witness the first Super 4 match between India and Bangladesh. The last time the two sides met was during the Nidhas Trophy 2018 T20 game where Dinesh Karthik hit a massive six and won the match.
India enters the Super 4 round after beating Hong Kong by 26 runs and Pakistan by 8 wickets. Needless to say that they must be high on confidence. Whereas Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka but lost against Afghanistan yesterday with a huge gap of 136 runs. Bangladesh would want to put their best foot forward against India to avoid their ouster from the tournament. The teams are all set to battle it out in the intense heat of Dubai.
