Dubai, Sep 29: India captain Rohit Sharma praised his team's effort after they pipped Bangladesh in a tense final match to win the Asia Cup 2018 title on Friday.
India went into the final of the tournament as favourites but were run extremely close by Bangladesh. In defence of 223, the Bangladesh bowlers were consistent, keeping India in check before they finally scrapped through on the last ball of the innings with three wickets to spare.
Although India were involved in a few tense matches against teams like Hong Kong, Afghanistan and finally Bangladesh, they managed to stay undefeated throughout.
Sharma, the captain, was pleased with the performance, lauding the team for excelling in all departments, an ICC report on Saturday said.(UNI)
