Rohit has confirmed that all those who were rested for the Afghanistan game have returned to the playing XI.
The stage is set for the Asia Cup 2018 final between Rohit Sharma-led India and Mashrafe Mortaza’s Bangladesh here on Friday.
While the Men in Blue are yet to lose a game so far, having won four games and one match being tied, Bangladesh have had a much challenging route to the title clash.
The last meeting between these two teams came as recently as in the Super Four stage, and it was India all the way in the match. After having bundled out Bangladesh for 173, captain Rohit Sharma led from the front as the Men in Blue chased the total with seven wickets left and 13.4 overs to spare.
The likes of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, though, will come back with a refreshed mind, after having been rested for their previous match against Afghanistan, with MS Dhoni captaining India for the 200th time in an ODI.
Meanwhile, the Bangla tigers will miss the services of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, who were both ruled out with injuries.
However, hopes will be pinned on Mushfiqur Rahim, who scored 99 runs in Bangladesh’s 37-run win against Pakistan.
