Earlier in the year 2018, the Asia Cup was played, then under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India won this trophy by defeating Bangladesh in the final. Meanwhile, from the year 2018 to the year 2022 i.e. in these four years, Team India has changed a lot. Even before the year 2018, the Asia Cup was held in the year 2016, even then Team India defeated Bangladesh. There was a player in both these teams, who got Team India the Asia Cup, but that player will not be with the team this time. It is not that that player has been out of the team, but he has retired from international cricket. We are talking about MS Dhoni, the former captain of Team India.
Dhoni played an innings of 20 runs in six balls in the 2016 Asia Cup
MS Dhoni, who was the world’s best finisher and captain, will not be seen with Team India in this time’s Asia Cup. MS Dhoni is such a player who played Asia Cup for India twice in a row and also led Team India to victory. Once Dhoni was the captain and in the other he was playing as a player. MS Dhoni played an important innings of 20 runs in six balls against Bangladesh in the final of Asia Cup 2016. He was also the captain of India in this match. Batting first, Bangladesh had scored 120 runs for five wickets in this match and set a target of 121 runs in front of India. Thanks to Dhoni’s last over innings and Shikhar Dhawan’s 60-run knock, Team India achieved this target at the loss of two wickets and won the match by eight wickets.
Dhoni scored 36 runs in the final of Asia Cup 2018
After this, Team India also reached the final in the 2018 Asia Cup and this time the captain of the team was Rohit Sharma. But MS Dhoni was also included in this team. This time also India was facing Bangladesh. This time also Bangladesh batted first and scored 222 runs, that is, a target of 223 runs for the victory in front of Team India. Bangladesh opener Litin Das scored a century of 121 runs. After this, when the Indian team came out to bat, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan shared a good partnership for the first wicket, but the wickets fell quickly after that. But one end MS Dhoni took over, he batted very slow. He played an innings of 36 runs off 67 balls and got out. After this, in the last, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravindra Jadeja took the team to the threshold of victory. India achieved this target at the loss of seven wickets and won the match by three wickets. After many years it will happen that Team India will go without MS Dhoni in the Asia Cup. MS Dhoni has now retired from international cricket, but he is still playing in IPL.
