A fitting finale to the Asia Cup 2018 saw defending champions India sealing a win off the last ball and thus clinching a record seventh title on Friday. India chased down 223 in 50 overs against Bangladesh with three wickets remaining at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Bangladesh, defending a modest total of 223, put up a fight for the ages by strangling India’s middle order. But soon the scenario changed, and this game seemed to have all the makings of a repeat of the Nidahas Trophy final. Back then, India needed five off the last ball. Here, the equation was six needed in six. A limping Kedar Jadhav guided his team home with a single off the last delivery.

Several former and active cricketers took to Twitter praising India for their win and also commending Bangladesh for their spirited defense of a modest total.

Here are the top reactions:
