Asia cup 2016 first match began at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur 24th February 2016 today between Bangladesh (Hosts) and India. The first t20 Asia Cup 2016 match will be a great match because both teams are big and also in-form almost both formats batting bowling both. India cricket team performance was very brilliant against South Africa, Australia, and Sri Lanka recent three series.
R Ashwin took nine wickets in three t20 matches against Sri Lanka at home ground, three wickets against Australia in two t20 matches in Australia, eight wickets against South Africa in first test match, took four wickets in second test match in one innings, twelve wickets in third test match and seven wickets in fourth test match, four wickets in two t20 matches that means he is the most dangerous bowler from Indian cricket team and will be a threat for all teams of T20 Asia Cup 2016. The second number spin bowler is Ravindrasinh Anirudhsinh Jadeja and also Jasprit Jasbirsingh Bumrah (Right-arm medium).
V Kohli the most dangerous in-form batsmen from India and there nothing to say about Indian batting because there are all best batsmen in their team anyone can bat at any situation of the game.
Dhoni returned fitter and leaner after a rare break from international cricket just before the Australia tour in January but suffered an onset of back spasms two days out from India’s first match of the Asia Cup and three weeks out from their first match of the World T20. The team management said he was recovering well and will be assessed before the match. If he is not fit, Parthiv Patel, who last played for India in 2012, has arrived as back-up. But if Parthiv is brought in, will he fit in the middle order or at the top where he’s had most of his success in domestic limited-overs cricket?
Coach Chandika Hathurusingha was impressed by Mohammad Mithun in the Chittagong camp, so he could get a first look in ahead of Imrul Kayes. Both Taskin Ahmed and Abu Hider might miss out while Nasir Hossain too could be benched with Nurul Hasan taking wicket-keeping and late-hitting duties.
