Which Team Is Hot Favorite?

By 7:42 AM
Defending Champion Pakistan?

World Champion India?

Host Team Bangladesh?

Sri Lanka

Inexperienced Afghanistan?

Which of these five teams is hot favorite to win the Asia Cup 2014? This is a question which every Cricket fan is asking from expert now a days and all of them have different opinion on this. Cricket is a unpredictable game and we often see big upsets happening. Just take example of last Asia Cup where Bangladesh defeated India and Sri Lanka and reached the Final of Asia Cup 2012. In the final they were short by just 2 runs.

So making a prediction Is really not easy about it however we can analyze the chances of different teams one by one.

First lets take a look at Pakistan. As we all know Pakistan is the most unpredictable team. they can defeat the strongest team a day and can lose to weakest team next day. however their combination is good for this Asia Cup. They have good bowlers and batsmen who are very capable of giving good performance specially on Subcontinent pitches. So Pakistan has a huge chance of winning the Asia Cup.

Now lets talk about the World Champion India. India recently lost the series In South Africa but their performance at home is brilliant. pitches of Bangladesh will not be much different from pitches of India so we can expect good performance from Indian Batsmen. India's weak point is bowling and If Indian bowlers also shows good performance then they will be unbeatable during the Asia Cup 2014.

The third good team is Sri Lanka. they can also win the tournament but their chances are less than Pakistan and India.

Bangladesh has home advantage and they have good some really good players such as Shakib al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal who can turn the game around. they were also runner ups of last Asia Cup. It will be hard for them but its not Impossible to win Asia Cup.

the last team Afghanistan who is participating for the first time In Asia Cup has not much chances to win it and reason for this is their inexperience. they can give tough time to other teams but I don't think they have any chance of winning the tournament.

So this was my small review of different team's chances of winning the Asia Cup. lets wait and see who wins it.
