Bangladesh began well in the Asia Cup 2018 final after skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first on Friday. But India ended up defeating Bangladesh by three wickets in a thrilling final. While Bangladesh made it to the final for the third time in the last four editions, defending champions India secured the title for the record seventh time.
India made five changes to the side that tied their last Super Four match against Afghanistan. Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal were rested for that match but all are back in the final clash.
Meanwhile, injury-plagued Bangladesh, who were without opener Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib al Hasan, made one change to the side that defeated Pakistan in the semifinal. Left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam came in to replace middle-order batsman Mominul Haque.
