Story of the Asia Cup T20 final, so far

Players from both sides, India and Bangladesh are playing football in the middle. The covers are off at Dhaka and what everyone hoped for. Rains that has delayed the start of the final has finally stopped and the ground staff supervising at the moment came to a conclusion.

There was a brief moment when the floodlights got dysfunctional and it was pitch dark. However, things have got better and it is going to be a9pm IST start i.e. a 9.30 pm local time. Pick of the tweets: Asia Cup 2016 Final, India vs Bangladesh at Mirpur

For the first time, India and Bangladesh will be playing in a tournament final and there is huge excitement in Dhaka as a win here will give the hosts their first Asia Cup title. Why not? They have played some inspiring cricket so far but it will be a huge challenge to beat India, who have won nine of their last 10 T20Is.

We hope rains again do not add to the spoilers here and we get the full 15-overs a side game that has been decided upon. Meanwhile, India have won the toss and decided to bowl first.
