The captain has been exceptional leading from the front. Ringing in the changes at the right time, Rohit has been on the money in taming the opposition. With the bat too, Rohit has been in great shape notching a century (against Pakistan) and two half-centuries (against Bangladesh and Pakistan). His form with the bat will go a long way in laying the foundation for India.
After a horrid series against England, Shikhar Dhawan is back roaring with the bat. He has scored two centuries (against Pakistan and Hong Kong) and had stitched memorable partnerships with Rohit Sharma at the top, which has helped the middle order in easing out pressure. His form with the bat will be crucial in the final.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is arguably one of India's best new ball bowlers. His ability to swing the ball in testing conditions has made him a force to reckon with. His three-wicket hauls against Bangladesh and Pakistan had a telling effect on the opposition as it took a lot of time to recover from Bhuvneshwar's blows.
A career economy of under five, when bowling in the powerplays, speaks a lot on his talent. He would be one of the players to watch out for in the Asia Cup final.
Jasprit Bumrah has been consistent in the wickets column in the Asia Cup so far. Sharing the early bowling responsibilities with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, he can be lethal with both the new ball and at the death. He has picked seven wickets in three games in the Asia Cup and his form in the dying overs will be crucial to India's aim of retaining the Asia Cup.
The all-rounder, drafted into the team late, has been excellent with the ball, with the bat and an agile fielder too. Getting into the groove almost immediately, Jadeja spun a web against Bangladesh and Afghanistan picking up 7 wickets in 2 games. His 25 with the bat against Afghanistan sadly ended in a tied cause but a capable batting capacity will keep him in good stead in the final.
