Asia Cup: India will watch the Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match with much interest
By Nishad Pai Vaidya
Yesterday was fantastic, but it means nothing; we've got to win the game against Sri Lanka and get to the final. After the Asia Cup, we can celebrate and look back at fond memories - Stuart Law, Bangladesh coach to his team.
While there is celebratory buzz around Bangladesh following the remarkable victory over India; it is imperative that the team doesn’t lose focus from the job at hand. For a side that seldom beats stronger cricketing nations, the euphoria of upsetting the World Champions can be quite a distraction. An encore of the previous game would do wonders and help them qualify for the final of the Asia Cup. It would be a new high in their cricketing history - a vision that should motivate them when they take on Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh not only have a chance of creating history, but also spoil India’s party. Virat Kohli’s breathtaking knock that drowned Pakistanmay count for nothing if the hosts’ beat Sri Lanka. Not long ago, a similar effort from Kohli had kept India alive in the Commonwealth Bank (CB) series Down Under and pushed the Lankans towards a must-win situation in their last league game. As it turned out, they scrapped through the Australian challenge to shatter Indian dreams. India finds themselves in a similar situation in the Asia Cup
