Afghan wicket keeper batsman

Looks unfit

Carriying way too much weight

Yet runs quick between the wickets

Keep well

And also bats really well.
Don't think the big lad really cares about singles just smashes boundaries

India's reserve batsmen or lesser batsmen(whichever you prefer) simply aren't good enough. Dhoni getting a bit long in the tooth. Karthik and Pandey don't exactly seem world beaters. Naturally Kohli, Sharma and Dhawan are outstanding but the rest aren't

I thought Karthik did pretty well.  I believe he is the 3rd highest score under Indian scorecard.  He should have continued on but missed a straight one.

You cannot expect someone who hasnt been regularly playing to just come in and start performing, especially in pressure situations. This is always the problem, especially for a batsman sitting on the bench. I fear Manish Pandey's career might get jeopardized waiting for his turn.

Poor umpiring decisions against Karthik and Dhoni.

Pakistan in trouble. Why is Sarfaraz batting at 4?

Bangladesh fielding like demons. Mortaza just took a screamer at mid wicket. Pakistan 85-4

Bangladesh power into the final by beating Pakistan by 38 runs. Mustafizur 4fer and Mehidy the key bowlers.

Mushfiqur Rahim arguably the most improved player in world cricket his 99 was vital to keeping the Tigers competitive.

All the more incredible considering that Bangladesh are missing Tamim and Shakib

The difference between India, Bangladesh and Pakistan has been the quality of spin bowling. Shadab and Nawaz simply not threatening compared to the other spinners on display

Imam giving Asif the lip after getting stumped; and then getting stumped himself in the next over was the funniest thing I have seen in a long long time :D

India won the Asia cup for the seventh time in a thrilling and absorbing finale in Dubai. Bangladesh will feel like its an opportunity that's once again slipped through their fingers. The Tigers romped off to 120-0, Liton Das smashed the Indian bowlers all over the park, Das reached a dazzling century. But Bangladesh crumbled to 222 all out.

India where cruising to victory 137-3 when Bangladesh applied the squeeze. Jadhav pulled his hamstring for the hundredth time and Bangladesh nearly pulled it off. But a limping Jadhav won it off the final ball.

Asia cup was decent viewing coming down to skill over brute strength due to the incredible heat in the middle east

Indian middle order issue will not be solved without solving the big issue - that of Dhoni. To get away with need to finish games, he expressed desire to bat higher recently, but he doesn't have the game to bat higher either, either eats too many balls putting pressure on other end batsmen or gets out. This is going to affect India big time in WC..

This is an interesting issue... the Dhoni one. Pant is an able replacement. but then there are question marks over Rayydu? Karthik? Surely Rahul has to fit into the side too?

Some geezer called Kohli will probably walk back into the XI as well
