Sri Lanka are placed at third position, just above Pakistan on basis of better Net Run rate. Bangladesh registered wins over UAE and Sri Lanka to sit on second spot. Sri Lanka has to win tonight to make its journey stronger towards the finals. India is the only unbeaten side so far. UAE is out of contention while Pakistan is in a situation similar to Sri Lanka.



Injuries are a concern in today's match. Dhoni isn't completely fit from game 1. Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the last match due to a niggle in his left ankle. He still seems to be unfit. And his technique that might not suit the Bangladeshi conditions, the think tank chose Ajinkya Rahane ahead of him in the match against Pakistan. 

Adding to the pain, Rohit Sharma got hit right on his toe when he faced a great yorker from Amir. Fortunately X- Ray has not reported any fracture. No wonders if he stays out of the playing XI today. India played seven T20s in last eight games with the same openers. Their absence would hit India's chances in today's match.

On a similar note, even Sri Lanka have suffered an injury blow in the form of their best bowler Lasith Malinga. Angelo Mathews has already expressed a concern that he may miss two matches in the Asia Cup. When Sri Lanka seemed to be struggling against UAE, it was Malinga who came to the rescue and took Sri Lanka home.

Bowling hasn't been an issue for India so far. Virat Kohli is dominating the batting phase of India. Suresh Raina looked clumsy against Pakistan. Hope he does will today along with Yuvraj Singh. Ajinkya Rahane too is due for a big knock.

India plays UAE next on 3rd March whereas Sri Lanka will face Pakistan in their last league match. Watch the match live on HotStar and Star Sports.
