After some breathless cricketing action for two long and brilliant weeks, the Asia Cup 2018 is one game away from culmination. One has to accept a fact that this edition has to be the best and the most entertaining of all time considering the number of close-fought games we have had to witness.

The incredible rise of Afghanistan is the biggest take away without a shadow of a doubt. With some big teams like West Indies and Sri Lanka slowly losing their mettle, it’s great for the world cricket that another champion side has arrived on the biggest stage.

A tournament without Virat Kohli was expected to be difficult for the Indians, but as it turned out, they managed to perform exceedingly well and reached the final with ease. They will be up against a rampant Bangladeshi unit, who are riding high on confidence right now.

It has been one heck of a tournament for a few individuals, but not all of them made it to the best XI of the tournament. Here are the eleven best players from the tournament who played a crucial role in their side’s triumphs.

The highest run-scorer of the tournament till the end of the Super Four stages, Shikhar Dhawan is certainly in a rich vein of form in white ball cricket. On difficult batting tracks, he managed to give his side good starts pretty much in every game he played.

Dhawan amassed 327 runs in the four games he has played at an outstanding average of 81.75. He registered two three-figure scores against Hong Kong and Bangladesh and will be eager to add a third to the list. The selectors now might not look beyond him as far as opening slots are concerned for the World Cup.
