Asia Cup 2016: India will treat final against Bangladesh as any other game, says Ravi Shastri

New Delhi: India cricket team Team Director Ravi Shastri said the Indian side is experienced enough to treat the Asia Cup Twenty20 final against Bangladesh as any other game when the two sides meet at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Sunday.

"They (Indian players) are experienced players and they should treat this as another gamer. Our approach to every team and every game has been the same," Shastri said.

Shastri went on to state that they will approach the final as a knock-out match as usual.

"Right from the start, we have approached every game as a knock-out game. The final will be no different for us," he added.

Shastri also added that having won a tough game against Bangladesh in the tournament's first match will help his side in the final.

"That was (first match) a good game. Bangladesh was a very good win, to start off with. In the first game, we were under pressure till the last 10 overs, when we bounced back. Every game is a tough game. It's about how you balance things out in batting and bowling. We did an excellent job in that game."

India go in the game as favourites and will look to continue their impressive form.
