He scored 176 runs in 5 innings at the strike rate of 123. Sikhar Dhawan got the Man of the Match award for 60 runs. With this victory India won their 6th Asia Cup title. Asia Cup was held in t20 format for the first time and India has proved last night that why they are the best. Though Bangladesh fought hard to get the victory. Mahmudullah whose wicket was taken by Hardik Pandey played very well. He got two 4 and two 6in 13 balls while Sabbir Rahaman got two 4 in 29 balls.

As the match started late the whole 20 overs cannot be played. It was just 15 matches game. Both the captains went for the toss and M.S.Dhoni won the toss and decided to bowl first.

An important question has raised by people out of this match. The hero of this match is Kohli. He has been performed wonderfully throughout the series. But he didn’t get the title of The Man of the Series. His average score was 76.5 and he was totally unbeatable throughout the innings. Even in the final match he was not out for 32 in 29 balls. In total, he got 153 runs. So people are now astonished not for Bangladesh’s defeat but for Kohli not being the Man of the Series.
