Build up:

Two nail-biting finishes. Two heartbreaking defeats. Afghanistan have had a taste of the roller-coaster world of sport in Super 4 of the Asia Cup. The Asian country topped their group, but slipped to a three-wicket defeat to Pakistan and lost by a narrow margin of three runs versus Bangladesh in Super 4 to crash out of the tournament.

However, Afghanistan can feel proud of their show in the Asia Cup so far. With the likes of Rashid, Shahidi, Shahzad, Mujeeb and Naib putting up good performances, Afghanistan have made a huge impact in the tournament.

From the humble beginnings of Afghanistan refugees taking part in tape-ball cricket matches in Peshawar in the 1990s to Full Member status in 2017 - the journey has certainly been a wonderful one so far. And they look set to make further progress in the world of cricket.

What about their opponents, India? The formidable side looked rusty versus Hong Kong in their first game, but since then, they have been in sublime form and have already qualified for the final. The way India thumped arch-rivals, Pakistan, by nine wickets in their last game capsulises their current form.

The likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been in tremendous nick, while Bumrah has speared in the yorkers at will. Chahal and Kuldeep - the spin twins - have also contributed to the team's cause.

For the dead-rubber game, India may rest Dhawan and Bumrah, with Khaleel and Rahul coming in.
