Opener Liton Das' brilliant century helped Bangladesh post 222/10 against India in the Asia Cup final match in Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.

Bangladesh got off to a flying start but lack of support from the middle and lower order batsmen and some brilliant fielding from Indian players saw Bangladesh only managing to score a modest total.

Das played 117 balls and slammed 121 runs which include 12 boundaries and two sixes and built a perfect platform for a big score but some poor shot selection from other batsmen cost the Bangladesh camp.

Put in to bat, Das and Mehidy Hasan (32) played handsomely and forged a brilliant 120-run partnership before Hasan was dismissed by Kedar Jadhav. The two played sensibly and often thrashed Indian bowlers all around the park.
