The Nidahas Trophy, the T20I tri-series that marks 70 years of Sri Lankan independence, is just one game away from reaching its conclusion, although the hosts will play spectators in the final as India take on Bangladesh at the R Premadasa Stadium.
While India still go into the final as the favourites, having won three of the four games that they've played so far, one cannot ignore the claim made by Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan about the momentum being on their side with their memorable two-wicket win over Sri Lanka on Friday.
The Tigers made it to the final after holding their nerve and edging Sri Lanka out in a closely-contested, albeit ill-tempered clash that saw sparks fly between members of both teams towards the closing stages of the game, with the trigger being a no-ball that wasn't signalled by the umpire. The altercations continued after the match as well, as a Bangladesh player was accused of smashing the glass in their dressing room.
However, Bangladesh will look to put that incident behind and start afresh when they take on the Rohit Sharma-led India in the summit clash on Sunday. India emerged on top of the points table despite fielding a squad that is devoid of several stars, including Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. In their absence, young guns such as Washington Sundar have made the most of the opportunities handed to them, and have added to the selectors' headache.
