This makes every team eager to use this opportunity to assess their weaknesses and discover their x-factors ahead of the global event. For India, the desire to win an ICC event has been intense since 2013, and with a significant home advantage, they are even more determined to claim victory this time. Winning the Asia Cup would undoubtedly boost their confidence ahead of the World Cup.
