One more clinical performance and one more victory for India! Captain Rohit Sharma remained unbeaten on 83 to see his side through #INDvBAN #AsiaCup2018 pic.twitter.com/6DFmMntrTC — AsianCricketCouncil (@ACCMedia1) September 21, 2018
In the first match of the Super Four stage of Asia Cup 2018, Rohit Sharma’s India will take on Masrafe Mortaza-led Bangladesh at Dubai International Stadium in United Arab Emirates. For Bangladesh, it will be back-to-back contest after they played their last league game on Thursday in which they were thrashed by Afghanistan by 137 runs. On the other hand, India are coming into the game with a day's break after they beat arch-rivals Pakistan quite easily in their last league fixture. India and Bangladesh have played 33 ODI matches, of which India has won 27 matches and Bangladesh five. These statistics might look skewed in India's favour and seem to undermine the recent cricket rivalry between the two neighbours. It all started with a no-ball in the ICC World Cup 2015 quarter-finals and spilled over to India's tour of Bangladesh when debutant Mustafizur Rahman ripped through India’s batting line-up. The rivalry between the two cricket fanatic nations peaked in the 2016 World T20, where India's dramatic one-run win against Bangladesh was followed up by Mushfiqur Rahim celebrating on social media as West Indies beat India in the semi-final.
