New Delhi: India and Bangladesh are all set to kick-off their Asia Cup campaign today. Both teams will be looking to start their battle with a win. We take a look at in-form players capable of changing the momentum of the game on their own.
Virat Kohli: Arguably the best batsman in the Indian squad at the moment, every Indian fan will be keen to watch him in action. Kohli has hit a purple patch and is the only player in the world to hold an average of 50 in T20 format. Millions of his fans will wait till the evening to see if Bangladesh is able to restrict him, or he destroys their attack with his ruthless willow skills.
Yuvraj Singh: Still a sought out player after 15 years of international cricket, all eyes will be on Yuvraj to see if he can take India home. Let’s see if we see the much-awaited return of fierce Yuvi again in this series. Indian fans, keep your fingers crossed and pray for another 6 sixes off 6 balls!
Ravichandran Ashwin: In the Sri Lanka series, Ashwin bowled with an economy rate of just above 3 runs an over, which is outstanding in T20 cricket. Apart from having an impressive economy rate, he also picks up wickets at regular intervals. So Bangladesh will have to be real careful while facing him.
Mustafizur Rahman: Although Rahman has played only seven T20 matches so far, he holds an impressive economy rate of 5.45. The youngster has created trouble for India in the past as well. So it would be interesting to see how well India tackles him this time.
Soumya Sarkar: Another fresh blood in the Bangladesh squad, Sarkar has been consistently performing well in the past. Sarkar’s strike rate of 138.29 in T20 Internationals is enough to put a frown on his opponents’ faces!
