The t20 finals of the Asia Cup 2016 between hosts Bangladesh vs India was delayed due to heavy rain this afternoon. The match is scheduled for a super Sunday on March 6, 2016.
The match was supposed to start at 7:00 p.m. India time. But rain delayed the start of the game.
So its going to be a 15-over Asia Cup finals to start at 9:00 p.m. India time.
Dhonis win toss and Bangladesh will bat first.
The Sher-e-Bangla Stadium was filled with lots of water and the hopes of having a game were slowly fading.
But the drainage system at the Stadium is excellent and wet patches dried quite quickly.
The covers are all been removed from the pitch. Still not sure how many overs will be reduced.
The stumps are being erected, and the Indian players are warming-up. The toss will take place soon.
The umpires are inspecting the game, and everything looks set for an incredible t20 game of cricket!
The teams are as below:
Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza, Mohammad Mithun, Al-Amin Hossain, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Abu Hider and Taskin Ahmed.
India: Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Ashish Nehra, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin, and Jasprit Bumrah.
