Indo-Pak final would've been interesting

Dhaka, Mar 22: Pakistan's Younis Khan has said it would have been nice if they had played India in the final of the Asia Cup on Thursday.

As they couldn't digest their defeat to their arch rivals India, Younis Khan and his team mates were looking forward to take revenge on their neighbours in the finals but Bangladesh spoiled their party as they defeated Sri Lanka to enter the finals of the Asia Cup for the first time in its history.

"Yes, they beat us on Sunday, but if we get them in the final, we will beat them," Ajmal had said, making his preparations for Sachin Tendulkar & Co.

Though the cricketer gave credit to Bangladesh for putting up a great fight in the tournament, and for their consistency, he said "playing India in the finals would have been different".

"The pressure of an India-Pakistan game is something else and thankfully I got some runs against them and came back to form...But then, Bangladesh will have nothing to lose and that can make them a tricky opponent," he said.

Younis said, Bangladesh being a very dangerous side, specially they are very good while chasing. They have proved good time and again as they have chased targets quite well in the tournament so far.

"Bangladesh are really chasing the targets well. They are consistent as a team now and they no longer depend upon individuals to win matches," senior batsman said ahead of the final of the Asia Cup against Bangladesh at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium today.
