Bangladesh are playing Nasir Hossain and Abu Hider.

Mortaza had also liked to bowl first. There are two changes in the Bangladesh side.

India plays the same team which played against Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

India wins toss and M.S. Dhoni has elected to bowl first.

The toss time. M.S. Dhoni and Mashrafe Mortaza are out in the middle for the toss.

Play will resume at 9.30 p.m .local time. It is a 15- over game with a bowler bowling a maximum of three overs. Fielding restrictions for five overs. Toss will be crucial.

Inspection will be at 8.45 p.m. local time. One think it will be a shortened Asia Cup finals because overs will start getting reduced at 8.40 pm.

Let us have a look at the group match played by India and Bangladesh. India won the match by 45 runs.

The Bangladesh players are playing football in the middle. The Indian team is also out warming up for the all-important finals.

According to latest reprots, the covers are steadily being taken off the ground. Some of the Indian players are out and about, playing around with a football. One hopes not many overs will be lost.

According to latest reports, the rain has finally stopped. The groundstaff are getting to work with head groundsman supervising them.

According to latest reports, the intensity of the rain has reduced, but it is still coming down.

According to latest reports, all the four floodlight towers are functional at the moment, but the rain is still steady.

According to TV reports, it is raining heavily at Mirpur and the ground is full of water. As of now, the toss is delayed. But with the rain pouring like torrents, it will be really tough for the groundsmen to clear the water, and even if the game starts, it will be a shortened one.

Heavy downpour accompanied by thundershowers threatened to play spoilsport in the final of the Asia Cup T20 between Bangladesh and India.

The much hyped grand finale saw an anti-climax of sorts when there was a slight drizzle in the beginning with groundsmen covering the pitch area.

However just as they had removed the covers, there was sudden thunderstorm, which saw the TV crew commentators and players sprinting to the confines of the shade with the heavy pitch cover being blown away.

The stadium plunged to darkness as the lights went off.

Shere-e-Bangla Stadium has brilliant drainage facilities that one witnessed during 2014 World T20 final, which started 45 minutes post scheduled time but the groundsmen had prepared the ground.

In case of no play, the trophy will be shared as both teams are scheduled to leave for India on Monday.

A rewind of the Asia Cup tournament

India and Sri Lanka have won the Asia Cup five times. The other Asian giant Pakistan has won the cup twice.

Bangladesh had entered the finals only once which was won by Pakistan by just 2 runs in 2012. This is the second time Bangladesh has entered the finals. For the first time the Asia Cup was held as a T20 format.

Asia Cup is a men’s One Day International & Twenty20 International cricket tournament. It was established in 1983 when the Asian Cricket Council was founded as a measure to promote goodwill between Asian countries. It was originally scheduled to be held every two years.

The first Asia cup was held in 1984 in Sharjah in UAE where the council’s offices were based (until 1995). India boycotted the 1986 tournament due to strained cricketing relations with Sri Lanka. Pakistan boycotted the 1990-91 tournament due to strained political relations with India. The 1993 tournament was cancelled due political reasons between India and Pakistan. The ACC has announced that the tournament will be held biennially from 2008 onwards. The ICC has ruled that all games played in the Asia Cup have official ODI and T20 International status.
