WATCH: The winning moment of Asia Cup 2018 final

A severely hamstrung Kedar Jadhav ran the most defining single of his short international career as India beat Bangladesh by three wickets to win their seventh Asia Cup title in a pulsating last-ball finish at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.


Chasing a modest target of 222, India made a rough weather of the chase at 160 for five with Kedar (23 not-out) initially retiring after pulling his right hamstring only to comeback when it mattered the most.

Kedar came in the 48th over after Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s dismissal with India still needing 11 runs. With six runs needed off the last over, Kedar and Kuldeep Yadav kept their cool against Mahmudullah Riyadh taking three singles and double off the first five balls. The part-time off-spinner drifted the final delivery onto Kedar’s legs as it brushed his pads for a leg-bye to ensure India maintained its supremacy among continental neighbours.
