India continue to dominate in Asia Cup
Team India continued its dominating performance in the Asia Cup by demolishing Bangladesh in the Super Four game.
India restricted Bangladesh to a paltry score of 173 and then chased the target with ease. With this seven wicket win India is now one step closer to the finals of the tournament.
Ravi Jadeja and Rohit demolish Bangladesh
The comeback man Ravindra Jadeja was too hot to handle for the Bangladesh batsmen as he claimed four wickets and ensured Bangladesh stayed on the backfoot throughout the innings.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was impressive as well and he finished with three wickets.
In batting, the skipper Rohit Sharma stepped up to anchor the chase and he along with Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni steered the team home with ease.
Rohit remained not out on 83 runs while Dhawan scored 40 and Dhoni made 33 runs.
Twitter reactions to India’a win against Bangladesh
Cricketers and the fans were also pleased with India’s performance and they registered their joy on Twitter.

While some fans couldn’t prevent themselves from teasing the neighbours.

Few fans had some other concerns too.
Mom is more of interested in finding whether Ritika is Pregnant rather than outcome of the match😂😂#IndvsBan

And fans cannot stop loving Dhoni even if he is not the captain anymore.
Dhoni is still a captain always be a captain.

But at the same time some fans didn’t agree with some of India’s strategies and they registered their dissent.
Dhoni at No 4 is two steps back for the Indian middle order. No matter if they beat Bangladesh. That's because he is not the future and if you don't groom players in Asia Cup, when will you? #Dhoni #AsiaCup2018

Rayudu is not India material.Sadly don't understand why selectors don't understand #IndVsBan

The men in blue will lock horns against Pakistan on September 23 in the Asia Cup. Both teams have won their first match in the super four stage and hence the winner of this game will enter the finals of the Asia Cup.
