India vs Bangladesh face-off on 24th Feb to kick start the T20 Asia Cup 2016 Series

Updated on February 22, 2016

The next couple of months are chock-a-bloc with T20 action on the cricket field. The upcoming Asia Cup series is a precursor to the much anticipated ICC T20 World Cup starting March.

India and Bangladesh go in with a definite psychological advantage over the rest of the teams with several wins in the recent past tucked under their belts. Team Bangladesh has bit of an edge over its neighbor, playing on home ground with a record 2-1 solid win posted against Team India in the latest ODI series. Their confidence is particularly high after following it up with series wins over South Africa and Pakistan.


Despite the recent wins posted by Bangladesh, India led by MS Dhoni is the clear favorite for lifting the Asia Cup this year having beat both Australia and Sri Lanka in separate T20 series held recently. India and Sri Lanka share the record of having won the Asia Cup 5 times each while Bangladesh is yet to win the trophy. Call it a psychological advantage, but India goes in to the series with a strong track record of reaching the finals eight times out of 12 Asia Cup editions so far.

The Indian Squad is led by MS Dhoni with a strong support from Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Pawan Negi and the rest. The Captain Dhoni’s fitness is being closely watched after he suffered a muscle spasm during the training session in Dhaka. Parthiv Patel will join the squad as a back-up wicket keeper. The tournament opener on 24th would be the testing ground to perfect the right combination for the rest of the series as well as for the T20 World Cup series just around the corner.

For the Bangladesh Squad captained by Mashrafe Mortaza, a win against India at the onset of the series would provide them with a much needed image boost and a leg up to take on the other teams with adequate confidence to see them through to the finals on 6th March.
