Even though the diminutive player missed out on what would have been the seventh century of his one-day worldwide career, his 144-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Mohammed Mithun (60) helped Bangladesh to post a competitive 239 all out. After Chahal removed Imrul Kayes LBW, Jadhav struck for the second time to pick Mushfiqur Rahim's wicket off a long hop.
Bangladesh batsman Liton Das celebrates after scoring a century.
"Everyone thought it will be an India-Pakistan final, but Bangladesh won a great match, we can?t take them lightly just because Pakistan is a bigger team". Mashrafe Mortaza's tactical change to open with Mehidy Hasan, who usually bats the down order, and Liton Das seems to have done the trick for Bangladesh. Liton scored 11 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. While Jadeja and Chahal will challenge the Bangladeshi stalwart by turning the ball away from him and making it hard to play the sweep shot, Kuldeep simply inspires more dread among batsmen with his variety.
Some are selling it at a premium of 33 per cent while others are selling it at the original prices, saying they have to fly out of the UAE on an urgent basis, and can therefore not watch the match. Bangladesh 8/0 after 2 overs.
Miraz did his job perfectly by dropping anchor as Liton hit a flurry of boundaries off Jasprit Bumrah (1/39) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He dominated the new-ball duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah so much - hooking and stepping out to clear the in-field with elan - that spin was introduced in the sixth over.
# Shikhar Dhawan tops the batting chart with 327 runs in 4 matches followed by Mushfiqur Rahim with 297 runs in 4 innings. The tournament was hosted by Bangladesh and played in a T20 format. The romps earlier in the tournament had set the template and Rohit had no hesitation in sending Bangladesh in after winning the toss. However tournament's top scorer Dhawan couldn't clear the mid-off fielder trying to hoist left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam.

Final of any tournament is a one-off game in complete isolation from how a team has performed in the tournament. They have been clinical in both the batting and bowling departments to emerge as the only side to remain unbeaten so far.
They rested five first-team players in the inconsequential last match against Afghanistan as they had confirmed their berth in the final earlier.
Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim said their eyes are now on the title, having confirmed a berth in the Asia Cup final. Up next for them in the summit clash is a spirited Bangladesh side who got the better of Pakistan in their last Super Four match.
The top order of Bangladesh team has been in tottering form, and with Tamim Iqbal along with Shakib Al Hasan going out with injuries, it remains to be seen how will the side cope against the fierce Indian bowling attack. The pair also put on a crucial stand worth 131 runs against Sri Lanka. They could've easily won the game if not for a few umpiring blunders, but they certainly showcased their strength as the best team in Asia right now.
For India, the last-ball draw against Afghanistan in their final Super Four encounter on Tuesday will serve as an eye opener despite the fact that all their key players, including skipper Rohit Sharma and his in-form opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, were rested for the inconsequential tie.
