uaeNew Delhi, Thursday, March 3 – India and United Arab Emirates are gearing up to fight at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Thursday, March 3. Nothing could be more thriving for the Men In Blue than a triumph against the rivals in the contest which is to start after a few hours. India have been in good form in the Asia Cup and already in finals. The outcome was expected since they crushed Australia in January and Sri Lanka in February in T20 match series.

Not to forget that continuous failure of Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Indian team last year against different teams made it get criticism from all around. Cricket experts and the fans were puzzled and not able to comprehend the correct reason behind their humiliating defeats. It is known to the world the India had poor record in the overseas as they weren’t able to adjust in the unfamiliar conditions and mood of the pitch, which sometimes supported the bounce and also helped the batsmen to go for biggies at times. The defeat at the hands of Australia early this year in One Day International was not shocking at all but when they lost against South Africa in home conditions, viewers couldn’t just believe on their eyes how a team can lose when more than a few things were in control on several occasions.

Prior to the cricket carnival, which is to begin from March 8, many supporters predict India would reach into the finals and might register win against strongest teams of their Pool. Boosting the morale of Indian players, who will be keen to make use of every possible chance to stay robust during the tournament, must be the prime motto of Indian captain. Pressure on Dhoni’s boys against different squad is going to be high. Avoiding stress and batting collapse in opposition to the rivals will help them gain foothold. Cool and composed captaincy of Indian skipper Dhoni and, of course, the team efforts are supposed to take India on the path of success and make all countrymen be proud of being an Indian while cheering for the team.

Coming back to their performance in the ongoing tournament, Indian camp needs to keep the winning momentum up in the upcoming match wherein they are to face UAE’s attack on the field with sheer confidence. In the three face-offs against Bangladesh, arch-rivals Pakistan and Sri Lanka, India succeeded to win matches thanks to excellent show. A number of Indian players desisted adventuresome when playing safe with least risk was the need of time, similar to the kind of show against Pakistan.

Anxiety is felt when each player is eager do to well and get better from the previous match. Losing a match is what India can’t afford when they wish to be champions once again to repeat the glorious history of 2007, winning ICC World T20 in the inaugural year. The magical performance of both batting and bowling lineups in Asia Cup will lend a hand to them inflict a humiliating defeat on the opponents at different stages. For the reason that India play as a unit and each member knows his role correctly, focus is usually on doing their bit in the best way possible.

No joy can match with the taste of victories. The audience strength in the second biggest event of cricket will be something to applaud for as people here in India eat cricket and sleep cricket. The ‘sea of blue’ is probable to play huge role in taking the confidence of Indian side at the peak. Indian grounds for limited over games support good batting but it is not that bowlers don’t have any opportunity.

India are to contest against the United Arab Emirates, who haven’t won any match in the series. Even if they make efforts to thrash the opponents, it will be their win. Indian camp sealed the hat-trick of wins in the ongoing tournament. Dhoni and company would certainly like to take success story forward by performing up to the mark in further contests also. The 34-year-old Ranchi guy Dhoni is known for making both weird and wiser decisions for more than a few times. Same is expected from him ahead too but he need to keep a fact in mind that there may be no coming back if a minor mistake turns irreparable.

As they are all set to meet Bangladesh in Perth after three days, expectations are soaring. Trademark sixes of Dhoni will keenly be eyed. Asia Cup is a bigger platform too to get worldwide recognition within a short span of time. Bangladesh look forward to winning it for the first time but that is not going to be easy as they know India can never repeat same old mistake of playing casual in a similar way during their tour to the neighboring country last year in June.

Boundaries and the way singles are taken by Virat Kohli – the one man army – are adequate to threaten the contenders. It is once again the time for UAE and Bangladesh to think of a strategy so that he could be restricted at the lowest possible score. With only a few more days to go for T20 World Cup, viewers are excited to see what comes at the end of Asia Cup. It would really be interesting to see whether India keep the winning run on or not. Bowlers, batsmen and fielders need to prove confidence of their skipper in them right as this could be the key to success. A few batsmen are in good form and some are getting back to it. Despite the fact that India are in the finals already, victory is eyed further too as this will allow them lift the trophy once again. Let us wait and watch what happens next.
