Almost all of Ajit Agarkar's predictions have been spot on!

The final of the series was the easiest win for Sri Lanka out of all the games, except against Afghanistan, of course! :D

Very much agreed with Qamar Malik. However, out of 11 previous Asia Cups, SL holds 4 titles and Pak holds only 2.

I agree with agarkar as SL are more inform team and they have been winning in BD for quiet a while now. Pakistan injury list little bit longer which can b a concern.

Loving this great friendship between Pak and SL, I hope we all cheer for the fours, sixes, wickets and catches. Because its about cricket. Now on serious note, I am not expecting Affridi to fire again (mostly depends on the pitch and luck) but still i feel like Pakistan might edge pass SL ... Dont take me wrong its a very even clash and will be a very interesting one.

SL have just Sangakara in batting and Malinga in bowling, whereas Pak's Hafeez, Umar, Shehzad, Fawad all doing well. Afridi may fail with bat but may do well with ball. It will be Pak's match. Will even out, 4 wins each, 1 loss 1 win against each other.
