After picking up an early wicket, Bangladesh did not have things going their way. They were a tad sloppy in the field as well and would have wanted to get a few more wickets after that, but have not managed to do so. Their most experienced bowler went for 14 runs in his very first over and has not been used. Nasir Hossain on the other hand, playing his first match in the tournament bowled an excellent first over.

India welcomed back Ashwin, Jadeja and Nehra back into the playing XI after they were rested in the previous match. Bangladesh too made a couple of changes to their playing XI with the likes of Nasir Hossain and Abu Hide featuring in the side. This is the second time Bangladesh are playing in a final of an Asia Cup, having lost the final in 2012 against Pakistan. India on the other hand have won the tournament five times.
