🇮🇳 have underlined their credentials as the favourites😍 for ICC World T20🏆 after romping their way to an Asia Cup triumph✌ on Sunday. Along the way, many positives emerged from them including the rise in stature of young Pandya and Bumrah👍. So, what are 🇮🇳's biggest gains from Asia Cup🏆❓
🔰 Dhoni's😎 still got it💪 : Be it the cool and composed captain, or the belligerent finisher, Dhoni has proved his doubters wrong and has shown the fans that he is still a force to be reckoned with😏. Al-Amin Hussain found that out painfully in the penultimate over of the final on Sunday.
🔰 🇮🇳 batting line-up is studded⭐ with match-winners : Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina... the list is long. Add Yuvraj Singh to the mix who has rediscovered his touch lately and it is an impressive array👌 of batsmen who can win matches on their own. Each of them have contributed to 🇮🇳's victory at different stages of the tournament👏.
🔰 Emergence👍 of all-rounders : 🇮🇳 always lacked a reliable pace-bowling all-rounder after the days of Manoj Prabhakar & Kapil Dev. Irfan Pathan flattered to deceive but it appears Hardik Pandya might be the answer to that particular conundrum😄. His more than useful medium pacers scalped 7⃣ wickets in the Asia Cup and he also possesses the ability to clear the ropes at will👌.
🔰 Bumrah-Nehra partnership👏 : 22-year-old Jasprit Bumrah and 36-year-old Ashish Nehra have formed an unlikely pace-bowling partnership and succeeded in giving 🇮🇳 early breakthroughs in all the matches👏. In fact, Bumrah has struck immediately after Nehra takes a wicket in matches they have played together in the Asia Cup😅.
