Final Match

So far Sri Lanka and India have won the Asia Cup trophy five times each. As far as the current form is concerned, India looks in better form out of the rest. They are considered as clear favourites to win the trophy. But T20 is such an uncertain format where any team can beat the strongest outfits of the world.

Sri Lanka have youngsters who are eager to go out and prove their worth. They did well to win the first T20 match in India but they lost the rest of the matches. 

Pakistan are one of the most unpredictable teams in the world. They are good enough to win the tournament and go ahead to the T20 world cup with higher confidence.

Bangladesh have shocked big teams last year with exceptional performances at home. They are hosting the Asia Cup for third consecutive time. They have an upper hand purely due to the home advantage. They aren't the old Bangladeshi teams who were easy to beat.
