Indian Tigers, Indian Cricket Team won the Asia Cup T20 2016 Championship yesterday, 6th March 2016. India were dominant in their win against Bangladesh in the final, chasing 121 with eight wickets in hand and seven balls to spare.
As India lifted the Asia Cup trophy without losing a single match in the tournament, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said they were well on track for the World Twenty20, beginning in two days time.
MS Dhoni finished the final match with a six off Al-Amin Hossain and he said, the top order batsmen with their superb show are making it easy for the side. India Vs Bangladesh Asia Cup T20 2016 final match taught the other teams some things that is not to mess with MS Dhoni and not with Team India.
If you mess with Captain Cool MS Dhoni, he will walk out with a arrogance, chest puffed up, eyes blazing, a smirk curving his lips and destroy you with two swings of his bat. No sword, no gun. Yet, Dhoni will cruelly demolish the hubris of a cricketing nation, silence its prayers, demolish its hopes and teach a lesson to its Twitter trolls. With just two shots. Bang, bang, good night, man!
“Remember their celebration after they (Bangladesh) won the series. Now go out and do the bloody job,” Ravi Shastri told the Indian team before the match started.
A Bangladeshi fan had made the mistake of dreaming and tweeting that one of their bowlers can scalp Dhoni and there was a bigger score to settle. So, with the game tentatively poised in the final moments of the Asia Cup final, albeit in India’s favour, out came Dhoni without a warning. Chasing 121 runs’ target, India needed 22 at that stage, off 14 balls. Known as ‘Gabbar’, Shikhar Dhawan had just departed, caught at point to a ball.
On the crease, at the non-striker’s end, was Virat Kohli, solid but a bit unresponsive. While the cameras were busy capturing the creases on Suresh Raina’s forehead, Captain Dhoni walked out to the crease. In T-20, getting 20 runs off the last two overs is a luxury and off one a challenge.
By the time he left, ending the game with his 20 runs off just 6 balls, his rivals had learnt when children play with fire, they inevitably burn their fingers, and his fans may have realised that they should jump only to the rescue of lesser individuals.
When Indian Skipper put the Asia Cup in his pocket with a six, like every title possible in cricket, Dhoni showed that he is back to what he does best: write the script of his life.
Micromax Asia Cup T20 2016 Tournament’s final match was played between India and Bangladesh. Due to rain, match was delayed. India won the toss and chose to field where Bangladesh set the target of 121 runs in 15 overs for Indian team and the rest is history…
