Player Of The Match
- India required 131 to win in 20 overs to qualify for the final on run rate.
- India innings: 1x7 ball over (allowed by KT Francis for Sheikh Salahuddin in the 8th over of the innings).
MS Dhoni made India the world champions on his captaincy debut in 2007 and has continued to rack up silverware like they are half off at a clearance sale
With a final tournament average of 121.00 at a strike rate of 165.75, Bangladesh may regret sending Mahmudullah in to bat so late in their shortened innings at the Asia Cup final
A thunderstorm and a Mahmudullah squall came in India's way, but a calm chase from Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli gave them an eight-wicket win and a sixth Asia Cup title
MS Dhoni has said it was very important for India to not trip up in the final of the Asia Cup to hold the critics at bay, and to keep the team's momentum intact leading up to the World T20
