India will look to retain their crown when they take on Bangladesh in the finals of the Asia Cup 2018 on Friday. In a repeat of 2016, both the teams will once again lock horns for the second time in the ongoing edition of the continental tournament. In 2016, India had registered an eight-wicket win to clinch the title (played in T20 format). So far 13 editions of the Asia Cup have take place but India and Bangladesh have faced each other only once in the final. Hence, before the two sides battle each other for the second time let’s take a look at the interesting statistics-India are the most successful side in the tournament with six title wins. Bangladesh are yet to win it’s maiden Asia Cup title.India and Bangladesh have met each other 34 times in ODI cricket where the men in blue have won 28 times while the Tigers could muster the same only on 5 occasions. 1 match was no result.In Asia Cup, India and Bangladesh have met each other 11 times where India has won on 10 instances and Bangladesh only once.The first ODI between the two countries was played in 1988 Wills Asia Cup in Chittagong where India registered a comfortable win by 9 wickets.As far as Asia Cup 2018 records are concerned India have been unbeaten with 4 wins and 1 tie. Bangladesh have won 3 and lost 2.India will be aiming to reassert their continental supremacy while an injury-hit Bangladesh will hope to shrug off stage fright when the two sides square off in the grand finale of the Asia Cup on Friday. A passionate Bangladesh turned out to be the party-poopers on Wednesday as they wrecked the prospects of an India-Pakistan summit clash with a gutsy performance despite losing key players to injury. On paper, India will remain overwhelming favourites to win the tournament for a record seventh time while Bangladesh will be hoping to be third-time lucky in a summit clash. Final of any tournament is a one-off game in complete isolation from how a team has performed in the tournament. Even the most consistent teams have slipped on the proverbial banana peel when it has mattered the most.
